In late October, NASA published a fly-through video of the International Space Station in ultrahigh-definition. It was filmed by one of the crew members during the scheduled sleep period in order to see a unique view of the outpost: night-time on the ISS.

The video was produced by Harmonic exclusively for NASA TV. Starting with the cupola window, the video flies throughout most of the outpost.

Unfortunately, while the U.S. segment of the ISS is covered really well, only a the Zarya module and Rassvet module (the video mistakenly called it the Pirs module) of the Russian segment, along with a Soyuz, is shown before heading back into the U.S. side.

I am a space geek who loves to write about space.

My passion for space ignited when I watched space shuttle Discovery leap to space on October 29, 1998. Today, this fervor has accelerated toward orbit and shows no signs of slowing down. After dabbling in math and engineering courses in college, I soon realized that my true calling was communicating to others about space exploration and spreading that passion.

Currently, I am a senior at Washburn University studying Mass Media with an emphasis in contemporary journalism. In addition to running Orbital Velocity, I write for the Washburn Review and am the Managing Editor for SpaceFlight Insider.
