1. Timelapse Earth

    This Hi-Def timelapse of Earth from the International Space Station not only makes gorgeous use of publicly available photography, but photographer Bruce W. Berry brings a cinematic eye and the sensibility of a poet-explorer, tinkering with the timing of the frames to give us a sense of the actual speed one experiences as a crew member.
