NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold operates an 8K camera at the International Space Station (NASA)
Washington, July 11, 2013 (The People Online) – Astronaut's work at the International Space Station (ISS) has never been so clear. NASA, in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA), has released the first video recorded with ultra-high resolution (8K) space technology, which shows the station's capabilities and the study that astronauts, according to La Vanguardia, are doing unparalleled clarity.
The video starts with images of NASA astronaut Serena Aunon Chancellor, who are conducting an experiment to improve the sequence of DNA and RNA technology in space. Aunon Chancellor also works on a study that grows microgravity plants, and compares how their growth differs from their cultivation on Earth.
The images depict a spacecraft in detail, such as the Cupola, a structure that provides greater visibility for the robot arm for the station, as well as an unmatched view of our planet, astronauts and teams from space.
Another video view shows how Serena Aunon's chancellor draws blood from one side to ESA astronauts Alexander Gerst. Astronauts regularly collect blood, saliva and urine samples that will be analyzed on Earth to find out how to live in the room, altering the human immune system.
While they are not returned to Earth, these samples are stored in a liquid nitrogen freezer, which maintains them at 80 degrees below zero, and appears at the start of the video, operated by NASA's astronaut Ricky Arnold.
