Hi-Def Video of Earth From Space Is So Beautiful You’ll Want to Punch Yourself in the Face

Thursday 2:36pm

Earlier this year, NASA astronaut Jeff Williams captured ultra high definition video of our pale blue dot from the vantage point of the International Space Station. It’s easily the most uplifting thing you’re going to see all day.

In this newly released video, Williams talks about what it’s like to gaze upon the Earth when in space, and why it’s important to share this unique perspective with others.

It’s been said many times that a person’s perspective on life, the universe, and everything changes after seeing our planet floating in space. Watching this video, it’s easy to understand why.

Because NASA is awesome, it has made these video files available for download, which you can access here.
