NASA Uses GoPro to Shoot Videos at ISS, Watch Inside
Have you watched Gravity? I’ll be honest, the first time I saw that movie I was not very well acquainted with how every thing looks and feel is real space, so my judgement of their expertise was kind of limited. However, if you watch the two newly released videos by NASA, you will understand that the makers of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney starer flick did a really good job.
You will also be surprised to know that the videos that were shot in the space, the International Space Station (ISS) to be exact, were made by a usual GoPro camera and nothing that required millions of additional dollars.
Yet, the result is probably the most life-like experience that you can see of the real space on your screen.
There are two videos that were released by NASA, both of them were taken by two astronauts named Terry Virts and Bruce McCandless as they performed their Extravehicular Activity on the ISS on February 25. They were preparing the exterior of the ISS for commercial spaceflights during which the first video (lasting an hour was shot).
Then then the second video was shot on March 1 and shows the astronauts installing communications equipment to be used by the commercial spacecrafts. It was also the last scheduled spacewalk by NASA at the ISS so far.
If you check out the videos you will, at one hand be able to get a very realistic experience of the space life but also appreciate how well the GoPro cameras can work!
