There’s nothing like a composite photo of the Perseids meteor shower to hammer home the realization that the Earth is hurtling through space like the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run.
That simile though
is pretty much the best ever
The Milky Way, Stars, and Aurora Borealis
Video shot from the ISS
With some lightning storms, city lights, and the sunrise thrown in for the hell of it.
It’s 2045, and a lone robot orbits Earth in a spaceship, left there by his human companions. He longs for his home on Earth, but knows he’ll never see it again. Tragic, huh? This is the story of Robbie, a sentient Catholic robot, and the subject of the short film Robbie from director Neil Harvey.
Sad robot is sad.
wow this was pretty brilliant. i have actually seen a couple films where they use footage from nasa to tell a narrative and it’s always so awe-inspiring. like this imagery is just that inherently stunning, without there having to be any fancy editing or camera-work. i mean, they don’t need it — they’re in space on a space ship doing space stuff. that footage is just begging to be made into something.
aaaaah going to watch this when i’m not working
going to watch it. yes.
