One cannot deny, we are all fascinated by Space, The Final Frontier. We talk about it in our every day conversation, but when we really sit and try to wrap our minds around it, we cannot, it is a place so foreign that we will never fully be able to understand it.[REWIND: Freefalling From Space: The Video]
Thankfully, technology has allowed us to step into a dimension that we normally could not. We are able to see places that are beyond our earthly limitations. What was once unreachable is now easily searched with the stroke of a few keys, and since the construction of the international space station, man is able to explore space in a way that they would have never dreamt possible.
Photographer David Peterson brings us into this world with a time-lapse video of photos compiled from the ISS. “The World Outside My Window,” takes the viewer on a journey, from breathtaking rotations of the earth, to a comet falling in the distance, these images give us an extraordinary glimpse into “The Final Frontier.”
Since the 1960’s astronauts have been taking photos from space. N.A.S.A processes photographs daily and adds them to their database of over 1,700,000 photos. Over 1,200,000 of these photos were calculated to have come from the International Space Station.
