A timelapse message from ISS to all Humankind
“Further Up Yonder” timelapse video was compiled by film-making student Giacomo Sardelli by using pictures taken from the International Space Station to tell a story and share the message sent by the astronauts who worked on the station in the last 11 years. This is his first attempt to craft a timelapse video, and an excellent one, we must say!
“People on Earth must understand that they have to get rid of the concept of borders on our planet if they want to follow the astronauts to new worlds in outer space.” Giacomo Sardelli
While the cosmonauts speak, a day passes on Earth, from dawn to sunset, until the Gateway opens with a burst of light. The ISS then gains speed and goes faster and faster, the astronauts are leaving our planet which they see spinning faster and faster, merging earth, oceans and people together, ready to follow them, Further Up Yonder.
