The collaborative project between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) features astronauts Alexander Gerst, Serena Auñón-Chancellor, Ricky Arnold and Drew Feustel (who has since returned to Earth) working on science experiments involving genetics, metabolism, photosynthesis, gravity, fluid-dynamics and robotics, among many others. The three-minute video also offers awe-inspiring shots of Planet Earth from outer space.
The footage was shot on the Helium 8K camera by RED, a digital cinema company. The camera is capable of shooting at resolutions ranging from conventional HDTV up to 8K, specifically 8192 x 4320 pixels.
