Ultra High Definition Video of Earth From Space Is So Beautiful It’ll Change Your Perspective

Earlier this year, NASA astronaut Jeff Williams captured ultra high definition 2K video of our pale blue dot from the vantage point of the International Space Station. It’s probably the most uplifting and inspiring thing you’ll see today.

In this newly released video, Williams talks about what it’s actually like to gaze upon the Earth when in space, and why it’s important to share this unique perspective with others.

It’s been said many times that a person’s perspective on life, the universe, and everything changes after seeing our planet floating in space. Though this video isn’t a shot from the moon, I find this quote by former NASA astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell to be quite fitting for this video:

“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.” ― Edgar D. Mitchell

NASA has made these video files available for download, which you can access by clicking here.

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.
