views from the ISS

during the total of 370 days that donald pettit lived on the international space station, he took some absolutely stunning video and photos of his unique perspective of earth, which i have previously posted here and here.  

his talk at luminance 2012 about how he took these shots is definitely worth watching:

We're lucky someone with photography skills got picked. That wasn't a factor in the selection process.
