An Astronaut's Stunning Time Lapse Photo From International Space Station

It's safe to say that the astronauts chilling up on the International Space Station have a pretty good view. Possible the best view of Earth (ha ha). Astronaut Christina Koch had some time on her hands, and made an incredible time lapse photo of the Earth from an 11 minute video. It's definitely not a perspective you see every day, and it is absolutely beautiful.

Astronaut Nick Hague Took a Time Lapse of the Earth From the ISS And This Is What He Saw

By far the best views of Earth are not stunning sunsets artificially created by Snapchat or Instagram filters. It isn't on top of a mountain looking down at the world below. It is from space. And anyone who has been there will tell you, there's nothing that comes close. IF you're still skeptical, you need to check out these time-lapse visuals taken from the International Space Station by Astronaut Nick Hague.

Though the time-lapse is a huge blow for the Flat-Earth movement, because its pretty clear from the video, its round. Maybe we can go back to deciding if the dress is blue or yellow?

If you have dreams of someday traveling into space, this video might make you drool with anticipation.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst put together this amazing timelapse using 12,500 images taken during his six-month Blue Dot mission aboard the International Space Station.

During his time up there, he had a number of major accomplishments. According to the ESA, these included "installing ESA's furnace that can suspend and cool molten metal in mid-air, a spacewalk to maintain and improve the Space Station, and the docking of Europe's last Automated Transfer Vehicle – the largest spacecraft to supply the research centre."

Gerst would often set up cameras to take photos while he conducted his work, and you can check out his full feed of images on his Flickr page.
