Earth | Time Lapse View from Space, Fly Over | NASA, ISS from Michael K├Ânig on Vimeo.

THE FINAL POST OF 2011... Just thought I'd conclude this year in human spaceflight by sharing the amazing video above and the stunning photos below. Clearly, it is an awesome privilege to be an astronaut, cosmonaut or any other living voyager cruising out in space...

Have a great 2012, everyone!
