ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet has shared an anthology of videos made during his second mission to the International Space Station, called Alpha, which began in April and ends now.
His camera is set to take pictures at two-per-second intervals, and then the images have been edited into video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok6loR_y7Dk) which is played at 25 images per second. Most are around 12 times faster than actual speed.
In his social networks, Pesquet shared this video with the caption: “Probably the last timelapse from space, and appropriately here is a special edition of ‘The best of montage: aurora, lightning, spacewalks, daytime views and re-entry of spaceships in less than five minutes. Sit back, stream it to the biggest screen in the house and enjoy it! “
More than 200 experiments were planned during Pesquet’s time in space, with 40 Europeans and 12 new experiments led by the French space agency CNES, reports ESA.
