Two trips on Earth in just 15 minutes?
This incredibly fast journey is possible thanks to a video from the International Space Station, released last week by the European Space Agency.
Stunning shots that allow viewers to see certain reliefs (for example, Italy), masses of swirling thunderstorm clouds and brightly lit urban centers, glowing from the darkness of space, consist of 21,375 images of the Earth captured by ESA astronaut and the International Space Station commander Alexander Gerst.
The video is being sent from Tunisia through Beijing and across Australia, showing that the planet passes day by day twice, increasing the scale far above the blue oceans and clouds that look like pictures.
According to Geek.com, the 15-minute clip was sped up to 12.5 times faster than the actual speed of the observatory.
