Further Up Yonder – The World from the International Space Station



So we live our lives dotted around this lump of rock hurtling through space and most of us are so concerned with the minutiae of our own existence we very rarely lift our heads up to consider the wonder and beauty of this rock called home.  I’ll never be able to view it the way that those who have travelled into space have and can only dream and marvel of the privilege experienced by that chosen view.  A glimpse of that experience is captured in this truly extraordinary timelapse video created with pictures from the International Space Station showing the Earth as a place of stunning beauty the like of which I have never seen before. The video, called Further Up Yonder, was made by Italian film student Giacomo Sardelli using Nasa stills. Sardelli calls the film a message from the ISS to all humankind and I found it quite awe inspiring and emotional.
