The International Space Station is a joint venture run by NASA, the European Space Agency and the equivalent agencies from Russia, Japan and Canada.
I don’t know about the other agencies, but NASA and ESA do an excellent job releasing their outlandish footage to the public, and some of the public puts the footage to great use.
One of these people is Dmitry Pisanko, who collected 95,623 of the publicly accessible raw images, and after lots of editing and working his magic put together a 4K time lapse showing some of the best views seen from space.
Compiling the 109GB of images taken from the ISS resulted in a 40 minute long unedited 4K resolution video, out of which Dmitry selected his favorite ten percent for the final cut.
The sifting process alone took him three days and three nights, he wrote on his blog.
An entire month was then required for the editing process in which Dmitry used Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects to deflicker, stabilize, reduce noise and color correct the images, but I think the result was totally worth it:
The part which took the longest was finding the appropriate soundtrack to accompany the video; Dmitry said it took “a long time, prohibitively long, almost three months”, but once he came across ‘Experience’ by Ludovico Einaudi he knew he had finally found what he was looking for.
All images used by Dmitry are courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center and The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth, where you can find and download images yourself.
