Astronaut - A journey to space

Astronaut - A journey to space from Guillaume JUIN on Vimeo.

What does astronaut see from up there? From the red soil of africa, the blue water of oceans, to the green lights of the poles and yellow light of human activity, discover, throught this journey to space, something astoundingly beautiful and strange at the same time.

I wanted to do something different from what has been done before with those shots. Something more dynamic and fast. After all, ISS travel through space at 28.000km/h! There are also more recent footage that have never been used (at least I think...) in other edits.

All the credit goes to the crew members of ISS expeditions 28, 29, 30, 31, 34, shot from 2011 to 2014.
The international Space Station weigh 377 tons, orbits the earth at around 350km from the surface, and does one spin around the earth in 1h30, at 28.000k/h! At 1'11 we can see a little refueling shuttle desintegrating back to earth. At 1'20, it's a little telecom satellitte that is launch in orbit. The little green and purple lights you can see at 1'57 are respectively fishing boats and oil platforms offshore with the big city of Bangkok nearby.

All the footage (around 80GB of pictures) was processed throught after effects/premiere, denoised for some shots, removal of dead pixels for some shots, deflickering, and simple color grading (didnt want to change the already incredible look! just curves, saturation, and some blue crushing). Don't hesitate to comment and ask questions about the video!

***TO THE STARS!***

A timelapse message from ISS to all Humankind. - 2K version available on my blog: http://wp.me/p2fVm6-bv

I wanted to use pictures taken from the International Space Station to tell a story and share the message sent by the astronauts who worked on the station in the last 11 years.

They are working to open a Gateway to Space for all humankind, but people on Earth must understand that they have to get rid of the concept of borders on our planet if they want to follow the astronauts to new worlds in outer space. While the cosmonauts speak a day passes on Earth, from dawn to sunset, until the Gateway opens with a burst of light. The ISS then gains speed, the astronauts are leaving our planet which they see spinning faster and faster, merging earth, oceans and people together, ready to follow them, Further Up Yonder.


Making of

As a filmmaking student, this was my first attempt to craft a timelapse video. It has been a time consuming process, but it turned out as one of my most satisfying projects.

I focused my workflow on colours and harmony of movements, syncing every frame with the music and the voices of the astronauts. Every picture has been post processed individually before being imported in the NLE software, as I tried to take the most out of every image in terms of colours, contrast and neatiness.

Pictures were downloaded from the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center and edited with Photoshop CS6. Even if they were Hi-res images shot with Nikon D3S cameras, a lot of noise removal and color correction was needed, especially for those shots at ISO 3200, which was the highest ISO speed limit I've allowed myself to use, exception made for the last sequence of the spinning world, which comes from a sequenze of shots taken at ISO 12800. Daytime shots were taken at ISO 200. I've used Topaz Denoise 5 for noise removal, as it is very powerful and accurate when dealing with shadows and blacks.

Editing was made with Adobe Premiere CS6, with a 2K workflow, which allowed me to scale, rotate and pan image sequences whose native resolution is 4K. The video was downscaled to 1280x720 resolution for Vimeo. The original 2K version is available for download on my blog (link on top of this description).

Inside the ISS - Expedition 38 Earth Observations Name That City


In footage recently posted to YouTube, Expedition 38 astronauts Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio identify different world cities
from their vantage point aboard the International Space Station. The video tour of the globe visits southern Italy, Greece,
and several regions in the United States, including the home states and cities of the two astronauts.
"I just talked to my wife at home just 15 minutes ago; she said the weather�s beautiful down there,"
one of the men can be heard saying as ISS passes over Houston, Texas.

The Milky Way from the International Space Station


Have you ever sat outside on a starry night and just watched the stars move slowly above you?
Here�s a video that shows what it is like to sit back on a spaceship and gaze at the ever-changing sky above.
This timelapse was compiled from recent images taken from the International Space Station.
Hugh Carrick-Allan, a 3D Animator/VFX artist living in Sydney Australia used a sequence of 52 images
posted on the NASA Crew Earth Observation website. The video also features the Aurora Australis and and some random satellites.

Videos: From Space, Lightning Looks Like Creepy White Blobs



Standing on the ground, we�re used to seeing the bolts and flashes of lightning during epic thunderstorms.
But how would it look like from space? These three Vine videos from orbiting NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman provide a glimpse.

Aurora and the Pacific Northwest

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and ESA astronaut Tim Peake shared a series of aurora photographs taken from
the International Space Station on Jan. 20, 2016. Kelly (@StationCDRKelly) wrote, "#goodmorning #aurora and the Pacific Northwest!
#YearInSpace" and Peake (@astro_timpeake) followed up with, "Getting a photo masterclass from @StationCDRKelly – magical #aurora"
The dancing lights of the aurora provide spectacular views on the ground, but also capture the imagination of scientists who study
incoming energy and particles from the sun. Aurora are one effect of such energetic particles, which can speed out from the sun
both in a steady stream called the solar wind and due to giant eruptions known as coronal mass ejections or CMEs.

Experiments on the International Space Station


Looking for Dark Matter



The hint of dark matter came from this instrument, the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) aboard the International Space Station. Image via NASA
One of the great discoveries of the coming century will be the direct detection of dark matter. This mysterious substance, thought to compose some 23%
of the mass of our universe, is currently one of the most-sought substances in existence, the source of thousands of scientific papers and endless hours of
speculation over the last half of the last century, despite the fact that it has not yet been directly detected. Now an analysis of 41 billion cosmic rays
striking a state-of-the-art instrument called the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) particle detector aboard the International Space Station (ISS)
may have come close to detecting dark matter

So beautiful it's hard to believe it's real. Night from the ISS

From the International Space Station, Expedition 42 Flight Engineer Terry W. Virts took this photograph
of the Gulf of Mexico and U.S. Gulf Coast at sunset and posted it to social media on Dec. 14, 2014.
The space station and its crew orbit Earth from an altitude of 220 miles, traveling at a speed of approximately 17,500 miles per hour.
Because the station completes each trip around the globe in about 92 minutes, the crew experiences 16 sunrises and sunsets each day.

Busy Traffic at the International Space Station


Expedition 47 Flight Engineer Tim Peake of the European Space Agency took this photograph on April 6, 2016,
as the International Space Station flew over Madagascar, showing three of the five spacecraft currently docked to the station.
The station crew awaits the scheduled launch today, April 8, of the third resupply vehicle in three weeks: a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft,
which will be the sixth spacecraft docked following its arrival and installation to the Harmony module on Sunday, April 10.
Dragon is carrying 6,900 pounds (3,130 kilograms) of science, crew supplies and hardware;
the largest payload is the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM).
The BEAM will be attached to the Tranquility module a week after its arrival for a series of habitability tests over two years.
