Last week, NASA released a beautiful fly-through of the International Space Station (ISS), captured in 4K Ultra-HD resolution. We drift through various modules of the station for 18 minutes, enjoying views usually reserved for astronauts.

This is exactly the relaxing, beautiful video you need today to space out. Enjoy:

Note that the video was captured using a wide-angle "fisheye" lens. That causes distortion around the edges of the image, but also allows the viewer to really feel like you're there. If you're wondering who really is there, check out this handy NASA site.
