By: Night Crew Labs

Originally published on May 9, 2017

Watch the aurora as it has never been seen before. The Night Crew sends a high-altitude balloon to capture REAL-TIME video of the aurora from the edge of space. Be sure to watch our recovery video for the wild backstory behind how we got our camera back.

Video equipment used on this mission: Sony a7S, Rokinon 24 mm f/1.4, Atomos Ninja Flame Recorder, Varavon external battery.

Nikon in Space: time-lapse view of the world | Nikon 100th Anniversary

 

By: Nikon Europe

Originally published on Apr 18, 2017

Nikon’s history in Space began with the Nikon Photomic FTN, a modified Nikon F camera that was used aboard the Apollo 15 in 1971 and Nikon cameras have been aboard every manned space flight since. This film, edited by SmugMug Films, is a compiled time-lapse video using thousands of still images. The bright flashes are lightning strikes hitting the earth, watch and enjoy.

This is the first of many remarkable moments, both big and small, which we will be sharing in the lead up to Nikon 100th Anniversary! Stay tuned for more. 🙂

World’s First Live 360 Rocket Launch: Orbital ATK CRS-7

 

By: NASA

Streamed live

NASA, in coordination with United Launch Alliance (ULA) and Orbital ATK, will broadcast the world’s first live 360-degree stream of a rocket launch. This stream will begin at approximately 11:00a.m. EDT on April 18th, and will last until the rocket is out of sight. This stream enables you to look around in 360 degrees -as if you were actually standing on the launch pad.

The Orbital ATK CRS-7 resupply mission to the International Space Station is scheduled to launch during a 30 minute window opening at 11:11a.m. EDT. Orbital ATK’s Cygnus spacecraft will launch on a ULA Atlas V rocket carrying more than 7,600 pounds of science research, crew supplies and hardware to the orbiting laboratory.

Tauchen Sie voll ein in die Schweizer Bergwelt bei Nacht, vom Creux du Van, an den Fuss des Matterhorns und rauf zum Pilatus.
Helvetia by Night 360 ist mein neuste Zeitrafferprojekt und das erste Mal in 360°. Dafür kamen 4 Spiegelreflex Kameras zum Einsatz und es wurden über 55‘000 Fotos geschossen. Die Aufnahmen entstanden zwischen Juni und September 2016. Ideal ist es das Video mit einem VR Headset anzuschauen oder einem Google Cardboard.

Everything you should know about TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets

 

By: Physics Girl

Originally published on Mar 1, 2017

The TRAPPIST-1 exoplanet system has seven earth-like planets and is only 39 lightyears away! I am joined by Professor Adam Burgasser and Dr. Katherine Deck, both astrophysicists on the Nature paper to discuss the discovery of this planetary system.

Check out this TRAPPIST video by PBS SpaceTime! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h871o…

NASA & TRAPPIST-1: A Treasure Trove of Planets Found

 

By: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Originally published on Feb 22, 2017

Seven Earth-sized planets have been observed by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope around a tiny, nearby, ultra-cool dwarf star called TRAPPIST-1. Three of these planets are firmly in the habitable zone.

Over 21 days, NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope measured the drop in light as each planet passed in front of the star. Spitzer was able to identify a total of seven rocky worlds, including three in the habitable zone, where liquid water might be found.

The video features interviews with Sean Carey, manager of the Spitzer Science Center, Caltech/IPAC; Nikole Lewis, James Webb Space Telescope project scientist, Space Telescope Science Institute; and Michaël Gillon, principal investigator, TRAPPIST, University of Liege, Belgium.

The system has been revealed through observations from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and the ground-based TRAPPIST (TRAnsiting Planets and PlanetesImals Small Telescope) telescope, as well as other ground-based observatories. The system was named for the TRAPPIST telescope.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Science operations are conducted at the Spitzer Science Center at Caltech in Pasadena. Spacecraft operations are based at Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, Littleton, Colorado. Data are archived at the Infrared Science Archive housed at Caltech/IPAC. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.

Jeff’s Earth – 4K

 

By: NASA Johnson

Originally published on Dec 29, 2016

The first time you see Planet Earth from space, it’s stunning; when you’ve spent 534 days in space—more than any other American—it still is! On his most recent trip the International Space Station NASA astronaut Jeff Williams used an Ultra High Definition video camera that he pointed at the planet 250 miles below; here he shares some of those images, and talks about the beauty of the planet, the variety of things to see, and the value of sharing that perspective with everyone who can’t go to orbit in person.
