An Astronaut’s View of the World

This is a Hipmunk guest post from Jodi Ettenberg

The perfect video for midweek blues: see what the earth looks like from space (in 1080p!) . Narrated by NASA’s astronaut. Dr. Justin Wilkinson, the video takes you from the deserts of Namibia to Eastern Russia to the Amazon, all as viewed from the air.

Reminiscent of the incredible Earth from Above series from aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s five-year odyssey around the world, it’s a fantastic way to lose yourself in all the wonders that our planet has to offer.

Hipmunk may not be offering space flights in its flight searches anytime soon, but sign me up if they do! What a view….
