    Nice. I didn't know earth looks so "digitalised" from all the man made lights from the exterior.

The Nikon D3x and lenses used was thereafter left behind in the unshielded orbital module (crew are seated in the descent module) of the Soyuz TMA-20 to be burned up during atmospheric re-entry.

    In comparison, this was Space Shuttle Atlantis (OV-104) docked to the Mir Space Station during STS-71 on 29 June 1995. Just goes to show how much larger the world's most expensive man made object (ISS) really is.

Really not much of a space available for anything else.

    Also have to consider the fact that the orbital and service modules of the Soyuz spacecraft left to burn and disintegrate during atmospheric re-entry already cost the NASA and Roscosmos tens of millions in US dollar though IMHO the value of the photos captured probably outweighs the losses. Just imagine if they had left the memory cards in the DSLRs.

    Time-lapse video from the ISS as it crosses the Earth's shadow in 45 minutes. The flashes of lighting in the thunderclouds are rather fascinating IMHO.

    Was browsing through the Image Science and Analysis Laboratory (ISAL) database at NASA-Johnson Space Center database when I stumbled on to this.

    Captured at a focal length of 180mm by one of the International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 26 crew members from the Cupola observation module with a Nikon D3S (NASA camera field value designation: N5) travelling at an average speed of 27,743.8 km/h is the tropical island of Singapore at night. Window of opportunity for this shot is at most a couple of seconds.

    Notice the contrast of the unlit Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Live Firing Area (Area C/D/E) and Central Catchment Nature Reserve in comparison to the built-up urban surroundings. Also the sheer amount of maritime vessels at anchorage along the eastern Straits of Singapore.


    • ISO Speed: 12800

    • Lens Aperture: F/2.8

    • Shutter Speed: 1/15 second
