It seems like we’ve been having a weekly dose of stunning space images. Following Gabriela’s post on astronaut Aki Hoshide’s self-portrait, I came across this magical time-lapse video of NASA’s pictures from the International Space Station titled Follow Up Yonder.

Seeing the planet from the ISS perspective left me spellbound. It’s not only about the images though. As Giacomo Sardelli, the Italian filmmaking student who put together this video says, “I’m not the first one to use NASA’s pictures taken from the International Space Station to craft a Timelapse video. You can find many of them on the Internet, that’s where my inspiration came from. What I wanted to do, though, was to look beyond the intrinsic beauty of those pictures, and use them to tell a story and share the messages sent by the astronauts who worked on the station in the last 11 years.”

The messages from the astronauts put words to the point of view incredibly well. Together, with the high quality images from the ISS, the video makes one realize how lucky we are to see this bigger picture of the world we live in. You can download the entire 2K version of the video from Giacomo’s blog here.
