“Time lapse sequences of photographs taken by the crew of expeditions 28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October, 2011, who to my knowledge shot these pictures at an altitude of around 350 km. All credit goes to them. I intend to upload a FullHD-version presently.

HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc. All in all I tried to keep the looks of the material as original as possible, avoided adjusting the colors and the like, since in my opinion the original footage itself already has an almost surreal and aestethical visual nature.”

Is space amazing or what? Why can’t well go there for a visit. Could someone make that possible already?

There are some divine images of both planets in space and pictures of Earth taken from space in the official Flickr Photostream for NASA Goddard. Who knew NASA was into Flickr? Very inspirational imagery for sure.

ZipporaLux is Boya Naomi Zippora Latumahina born and raised in the Netherlands but now residing in London. She is a photographer and graphic design student and she like cats and Hubble Space Telescope photos which led to this incredibly fun series of posters that you can purchase via her Etsy shop. How can you not like those posters? They’d make for a great conversation piece in any aspiring design studio.

Boston.com has assembled an impressive array of images gathered from different satellites and space missions for their ‘Big Picture‘ column. I have long been a fan of all things pertaining to outer space since I was a very small child. It was really my only other love outside of art. I wanted to attend space camp desperately but my parents didn’t think they could afford to send me. It has kind of been a bummer that space themes have been so trendy in the last few years because I feel like I have to avoid using space imagery in my work but it’s always the imagery I feel compelled to start with. I hope that my child’s generation will finally begin real space exploration. That would be something to see.

“Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME’s (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission.

Working with STEREO scientists, Semiconductor collected all the HI image data to date, revealing the journey of the satellites from their initial orientation, to their current tracing of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Solar wind, CME’s, passing planets and comets orbiting the sun can be seen as background stars and the milky way pass by.

As in Semiconductors previous work ‘Brilliant Noise’ which looked into the sun, they work with raw scientific satellite data which has not yet been cleaned and processed for public consumption. By embracing the artefacts, calibration and phenomena of the capturing process we are reminded of the presence of the human observer who endeavors to extend our perceptions and knowledge through technological innovation.”
