I was just poking around the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth website and saw the series of images and said to myself ‘That is so bloody cool, I should turn that into a video like those guys did for the What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth video’.”
It’s quite a surreal show and, thanks to the miracle of space travel and technology, we get to watch it from the comfort of our desks.
