A Message from ISS to All Humankind
I came across this video on NASA Television’s YouTube channel this morning and knew instantly I wanted to share it. The video, titled Further Up Yonder: A Message from ISS to All Humankind, is the work of Italian videomaker, Giacomo Sardelli, who’s YouTube channel can be found here. Sardelli writes of the video, “I’m not the first one to use NASA’s pictures taken from the International Space Station to craft a Timelapse video. You can find many of them on the Internet, that’s where my inspiration came from. What I wanted to do, though, was to look beyond the intrinsic beauty of those pictures, and use them to tell a story and share the messages sent by the astronauts who worked on the station in the last 11 years.” In this endeavor Sardelli is, without doubt, successful.
I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do. I also hope it serves as a reminder that humanity can work together and, in fact, is working together. For me, there is no greater wish this holiday season then the wish that we continue to explore, continue to cooperate, continue to learn, and continue to spark and excite the minds of future generations. I thank Mr. Sardelli for so beautifully illustrating that this is already being done.
