Astronaut Time LapseBy Rocky Thompson on November 14th, 2011
Anyone can hike into the Canyonlands National Park and make a video of the landscape. You need to have access to slightly more sophisticated travel plans to shoot one of the Earth from above. This video was shot by Ron Garan and the crew on the International Space Station over the course of three months this year. Soaring over the planet serves as a nice reminder that our incredibly thin ozone layer is all that stands between us and complete annihilation.
