NASA has released a new video on its YouTube channel, but that's no surprise considering how the US space agency is down every other day. This is strange – this is the world's first 8k video cassette that was made in space. The video was taken at the RED Helium 8K camera by astronaut cameras at the International Space Station. The camera can capture video at 8192 x 4320 pixels.
"These new shots represent the story of human space flight in more vivid detail than ever before," commented Dylan Mathis in a NASA press release, communications manager for the International Space Station program at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. "The world of camera technology continues to grow, and our high-fidelity planet is always welcome, and we are excited to see what kind of images they will get in the future."
The RED Helium 8K camera was delivered to the International Space Station at the 14th Naval SpaceX Resupply mission in April through a space agreement between NASA and RED. Although the camera was shipped in April, NASA was able to shoot videos from the space station back in November. The video was released on YouTube on November 2, when it was the 18th anniversary of people living continuously on board the International Space Station and the 20th anniversary of the launch of the first two space elements.
NASA 8K video is best watched on 8K monitors or TVs, which is still a small one. The Dell UP3218K 8K Monitor, introduced at CES 2017, is an excellent monitor for NASA video surveillance. In fact, however, most of us own displays with a maximum resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels and Internet connections that are fast enough to stream a 4K video without stuttering. It's still great watching!
