#NASA #ISS – Take A Trip To International Space Station In NASA’s Stunning 4K Video : NASA takes us on a tour of International Space Station in the latest stunning video. The 18-minute 4K ultra HD video shows the interior of International Space Station from an astronaut’s perspective as he is floating through the space station from one corner to another.
The video begins with the beautiful view of the Earth as seen from Cupola, an observation area found on the Earth-facing side of the space station. Then, the camera smoothly takes us through the different parts or modules of the ISS, including Unity Module.
The first U.S. built component of International Space Station, Zarya Functional Cargo Block, overall first component launched to the ISS and Zvezda Module that controls a number of systems like electrical power distribution, data processing systems, flight control systems and propulsion systems.
The International Space Station is a habitable artificial satellite which was launched in 1998. Initially, it consisted on a single component but more pieces were added into it over time.
ISS orbits about 220 miles above Earth and has been used for conducting experiments and understanding life in micro-gravity conditions, which will ultimately help exploring other destinations in deep space.
Plus, it is a global observation and diagnosis station and offers a unique vantage for observing the Earth’s ecosystems with various automated tools. ISS is like a home to astronauts in space. Six people can stay on it at a time while the first group arrived on ISS in November 2000.
In addition to the laboratories where astronauts conduct experiments, ISS also contains bedrooms, bathrooms, gymnasium and much more. International Space Station travels at 17,500 mph, meaning it takes almost 90 minutes to complete an orbit around Earth. The latest HD video is created by a video service provider called Harmonic.
