The ISS Image Frontier – “Making the Invisible Visible”

A short film by Christoph Malin: This film is a tribute to the International Space Station Program as well as Dr. Don Pettit, NASA Astronaut and ISS Astrophotographer. It can not be emphasized enough, how Dr. Pettits innovative photographic work and his passion has changed the way we see earth from space. Accompanied with great info on the challenges of astrophotography aboard the ISS by Dr. Pettit, this shortfilm features a compilation of 4 special ISS timelapses (“intro”, “startrails”, “fisheye” and “aurorae”). Welcome aboard the ISS – enjoy stunning photography and timelapses from the Space Station!

Finally, please also be aware of the growing issue of light pollution (plightwithlight.org) one can see in many of these scenes! Support IDA (darksky.org) on their challenge to preserve the night sky for us and our children, on reducing energy waste!

Visit our team at the UNESCO IYA 2009 Project TWAN (twanight.org) for some of the coolest nightsky images and videos on our planet! One people, one sky!

Always believe in your dreams and make it possible!

All the best,
Christoph Malin
