An immersive, 4k, fish-eye glide through the corridors and compartments of the International Space Station released by NASA and Harmonic.
Well now, if it isn’t the International Space Station. To wit.
Using precise timing, the Earth-orbiting space platform was photographed in front of a partially lit gibbous Moon last month. The featured image was taken from Palo Alto, California, USA with an exposure time of only 1/667 of a second. In contrast, the duration of the transit of the ISS across the entire Moon was about half a second. A close inspection of this unusually crisp ISS silhouette will reveal the outlines of numerous solar panels and trusses. The bright crater Tycho is visible on the lower left, as well as comparatively rough, light colored terrain known as highlands, and relatively smooth, dark colored areas known as maria.

It’s a NASA tradition for every ISS expedition to have its own commemorative group-shot poster.
As you’ll know from The Big Bang Theory, scientists love nothing more than a bit of sci-fi cosplay.
Except maybe science.
