Every frame in this video is a photograph taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
I created this timelapse on a long weekend after discovering the image library online. I used Photoshop and Sony Vegas to edit and compile the footage.
The music is a track from one of my favorite sci-fi movies, Sunshine. I thought the music and imagery would fit well together.

It would be cool to take a long drive around the perimeter of M81, or Bode's Galaxy, taking in all the festive lights of a trillion stars, then driving off watching the rear view mirror for 10 or 20 light years...
But since that is still a little bit into the future, here's the next best thing. The Hubble Space Telescope brings M81 to you via this high resolution image. No need to adjust your rear view mirror.
(This is from the Bonus Section of my Carina Blu Ray project, coming this fall.)
