Experiment Description

Research Overview

  • All earth images for Earth Imagery from ISS are captured using the on-orbit Red Dragon camera.
  • Raw video is collected over the course of approximately six months. The goal is to capture 60 hours of 6K footage at 60-72 fps of earth imagery.
  • Imagery is taken from a fixed camera point of view where all motion comes from the subject.
