A screenshot from the video

The International Space Station (ISS), other that being the largest artificial body in orbit around the planet, also serves as a habitable microgravity and space environment laboratory. As it revolves around the earth, it also captures some really magnificent imagery thanks to its high-tech Epic Dragon camera.

The Epic Dragon camera is capable of capturing footage in 6K, as in 6,144 pixels X 3160 pixels at an unbelievable 100 frames per second.

And now NASA has released a small footage captured from the Epic Dragon which shows our blue planet in all it’s glory. What’s more, the footage is available in the 4K.

If you have a screen that supports 4K and an internet connection capable of streaming it, the video is definitely worth checking out. If you don’t, fret not. It’s available in ‘just HD’ too.
