I did a search and found nothing. This video is as epic as you can imagine.






A NASA astronaut has filmed his out-of-this-world perspective with a GoPro during two spacewalks known as extravehicular activities (EVAs). The videos were taken on February 25 and March 1 of this year.

The footage provides a view that few of us will ever get to see, which is exactly the reason U.S. astronaut Terry Virts filmed the video while he and fellow astronaut Barry Wilmore performed essential maintenance on the International Space Station


iflscience

The quality is unreal, its much better than the grainy # NASA normally provide. You can watch it in HD too.

Obviously fake: 1) no stars and 2) you need like $1M for a camera to work in space.

Just kidding!!! That's pretty good footage, actually.

I do somewhat wonder how well the GoPro held up, if it was anything special/had any protection, etc.

They should have more of those up there.

How bizarre and weird it all is, from planets to big fiery stars warming planets and giving light like a mighty god in a sea of infinity. It'd be mind blowing up there. Creeps me out a little thinking about it. I feel like every human should be shot up there once, to remind ourselves no matter how confident we are about the things we "know" truthfully we have absolutely zero idea what's really going on or how or why.

Wow we have a beautiful planet!!! Skimmed through the whole thing just now...Thank you for posting! S&F

How much of an orbit around the planet did they make in an hour? Seemed like a good distance! I wish they had actually edited with text on the screen to know what we were looking at from above. I couldn't tell where they were, but there was barely any cloud coverage at 41:00-44:00, I'm guessing Japan and traveling west?

Around the 47 minute mark I saw white debris or particles that strongly resembled what would have been mistaken for a UFO back when the video technology wasn't so good. This video has some good examples of debunking close up objects to the camera.

ETA:
The GoPro was making a lot of noise, which it does when it's in the case and you are handling it, like in water for example. But why in space? I thought there was no sound in space? How could it record the "crumbling" sound from the astronaut holding the camera? You think the plastic case can produce sound in space?

Pretty much debunks every flat earth conspiracy theory in existence in one video. Bravo!

I'm willing to bet he had some sort of space grade protective case Installed if it was needed, those things are pretty dang sturdy already though, not sure about space sturdy? Good question.

Thanks for sharing the video OP this is awesome. There is so much you can do with a GoPro they're a blast, I think this astronaut has taken it to the next level though.

Cool, but I have serious question. Why is there sound?? You can hear certain things like when he's adjusting the camera, some humming etc. Even if it were just internal mechanisms, sound requires air.

Hmmmmm....
Is it the "casing" that maybe have a small
amount of pressure and O2??
Would like to see the cam in full veiw...

Sound requires a medium that will vibrate solid material & water will work the same as air!

Water???
Is there water in the casing?

Awesome video. Thanks for sharing!

GoPro lives up to it's name.

The sound intrigues me though.

Owning a GoPro myself, the mic picks up a lot of sound through the casing itself...all the humming and clicking goes on inside the camera, it just must be easier to hear when there's no external noise drowning it out
Its the same as someone hearing a train coming by putting their ear to the tracks

The casing itself will transmit sound. Anything made of matter that is touching or connected to something that generates sound will propagate that sound.

Two astronauts can touch their helmets together and be able to talk to each other even if their radios go out. Their voices vibrate the air in the suite, which will then vibrate their helmets, transferring the sound waves. But only if they touch their helmets together.

I have a question,

Why is it that in over an hours footage off said space walk, we only every see shots with the earth as a background?

Why don't we see what is behind him?

One would think he could turn the carmera around or would turn around at some stage.

Well that was 2 questions.

Peace.

How?
I would be intrested in hearing why 1 video which is like many we have see would do that?
Just sayin, as that was a big claim.

I did not mean the case had water , solid materials & WATER can also transfer sound waves.

Why what do you think it would show ?

In all fairness, the "big claim" would be saying the Earth is flat and extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Modern physics, astronomy and science demonstrate that the Earth is round, this video can be added to the mountains of proof that it is.

Unless you feel the video is a fake and if you do then why?

I don't know.
Wouldn't you like to know?
How hard would it be to turn the camera around?

Hi Helious ,

Thanks for your reply and answer.

Regarding if i think the video is fake, i don't know.

So with that said and is respect to the OP and keeping this thread on topic, I will leave it at that.

Though to add I also found it intresting the sounds in the video as well pointed out by other posters.
