Traveling around the globe in a matter of minutes is still a pipe dream for most people, unless of course, you inhabit the International Space Station which orbits Earth 16 times each day at a speed of around 17,150mph. NASA astronaut Nick Hague who was recently stationed at the ISS captured a stunning timelapse video of the ISS encircling Earth, allowing us to see our planet in its entirety in under a minute.
Check out the timelapse below, and if you enjoy, make sure to subscribe to NASA’s YouTube channel.
Took a moment to capture the beauty of our planet today. I was awestruck as I watched the wispy clouds disappear into the shadows. pic.twitter.com/CNLUsDryY1
