Video From Space – level 2

08-03-2022 15:00

An astronaut at the International Space Station took an image every few seconds of the Earth. Then he played the images back quickly and created a time-lapse video. The video shows how the Earth spins.

In the time it takes to play one football match, the ISS circles the planet completely. During a 90-minute period, astronauts can pass from daytime to nighttime and back again.

Difficult words: International Space Station (a place where astronauts from around the world live in space), time-lapse video (a special video that shows a long period of time over a very short period), spin (turn around quickly).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
