Every frame in this video is a photograph taken from the International Space Station. All credit goes to the crews on board the ISS. Knate Myers removed some noise and edited some shots in photoshop and then compiled and arranged the images using Sony Vegas. The music is Sunshine (Adagio In D Minor) composed by John Murphy and performed by the City Of Prague Philharmonic.
The International Space Station (ISS) is a habitable artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. It follows the Salyut, Almaz, Skylab and Mir stations as the ninth space station to be inhabited. The ISS is a modular structure whose first component was launched in 1998. Like many artificial satellites, the station can be seen from Earth without any equipment (referred to as naked eye). The ISS consists of pressurised modules, external trusses, solar arrays and other components. ISS components have been launched by American Space Shuttles as well as Russian Proton and Soyuz rockets. Budget constraints led to the merger of three space station projects with the Japanese Kibō module and Canadian robotics. In 1993 the partially built Soviet/Russian Mir-2, the proposed American Freedom, and the proposed European Columbus merged into a single multinational programme.
