Two trips around the Earth in just 15 minutes?
This incredibly fast journey is possible thanks to the time-limited video from the International Space Station published last week by the European Space Agency.
Stunning shots that allow viewers to see certain formats (like Italy), masses of swirling clouds, and brightly lit urban centers shining from the darkness of the universe, consist of 21,375 images of the Earth captured by the astronaut ESA and the International Space Station Commander Alexander Gerst.
The video travels from Tunisia through Beijing and across Australia, showing the planet going through the night twice, approaching far above the deep oceans and clouds that look like paintings.
The 15-minute video clip was launched up to 12.5 times faster than the actual speed of the observatory, according to Geek.com.
