The International Space Station Got the 4K Upgrade

Last week we brought you the news that NASA now also was uploading 4K 60fps videos to YouTube, but initially only shared a 20 seconds clip. That has since been followed up with more 4K footage as the international space station got the full 4K upgrade.

Not all their 4K videos are 60fps, and they don’t need to be in order to look stunning. The video below shows some amazing views both inside and outside the space station. The view of life in space got a major boost with the introduction of 4K Ultra High-Definition (UHD) video, providing an unprecedented look at what it is like to live and work aboard the International Space Station.

While these cameras mainly should be used for experiments and increase the amount of things the astronauts can do onboard of the space station, that doesn’t mean that it should be used exclusively for experiments. It also bestows the most breathtaking views of planet Earth that haven’t been seen like that before.

We also get to see what they eat up there, and it might be a bit surprising for some of you; it isn’t all dehydrated instant food.

NASA promised to release a lot more videos in the future and I for once can’t wait to see more. I might be too much of a coward to want to go into space myself, but I do enjoy the breathtaking views of our planet with an outside perspective.
