Last week, when we welcomed the astronauts home, I kind of sat and marveled that we can now get updates in practically real time from the International Space Station via Twitter. And now? Watching what goes down in the ISS and its videos of our planet just got a whole lot more awesome.
NASA announced that it was starting to make videos using 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) video. In addition to giving researchers — and us — back on the Blue Planet unprecedented looks at the experiments on board, it will also “bestow the most breathtaking views of planet Earth and space station activities ever acquired for consumption by those still dreaming of making the trip to outer space.”
The agency is promising us more 4K-UHD videos soon via ReelNASA. Stay tuned.
