If sci-fi films will have us believe anything, it’s that space is terrifying.
But I’m gonna let you in on a little secret – watching this livestream from the ISS is the best meditation I’ve ever done.
HDEV cameras aboard the International Space Station are constantly recording, as the ISS circles the earth at 380 kilometres above the planet, on the edge of space in low earth orbit.
The station is crewed by NASA astronauts as well as Russian Cosmonauts and a mixture of Japanese, Canadian and European astronauts as well.
The ISS passes into the dark side of the earth for roughly half of each of its 90-minute orbits.
As the Space Station passes into a period of night every 45 mins video is unavailable – during this time, and other breaks in transmission recorded footage is shown when back in daylight earth will recommence.
And that music – bliss.
