This timelapse video shows still pictures taken from the International Space Station of the departing #Dragon supply spacecraft. Played in quick succession the video displays faster than real life but in 4K resolution.
The Dragon spacecraft was released from the Station’s robotic arm at 18:38 GMT on 3 August 2018. Thrusters fired to increase its distance from the Space Station and the spacecraft started its deorbit and return to Earth, splashing down in the Pacific Ocean less than seven hours after release.
The International Space Station flies at 28 800 km/h above our planet doing a complete orbit in around 90 minutes – during release operations the sun set and rose above the horizon many times.
As Dragon faded into the distance it flew over a stormy part of Earth – lightning flashes can be seen many kilometres below.
Dragon is the only spacecraft that can return to Earth with scientific cargo aside from the Soyuz spacecraft that ferries astronauts to space and back – this flight carried over 1700 kg of cargo.

Just a video of me swimming around (new bikini though). We just got a GoPro 6 and decided to test out the slow-motion capabilities. I’m so impressed by this little thing – this was all filmed in 2.7k at 120fps.
I’m thinking of doing something for Earth Day, maybe a giveaway where you can win a tail when you cook a vegetarian meal. What do you guys think?
By the way, you’d do me a huge favour if you’d follow me on Instagram or Twitter: @stellathesiren. I also have a second account where I share more day-to-day stuff, @stellabruggen. A follow is very much appreciated 🙂
Music is “Nocturnal Waltz” by Johannes Bornlöf. It has a restlessness that I feel somehow resounds in me. Do you guys experience the same thing?
This was filmed at the Aqua Mundo pool in Zandvoort, the Netherlands. Thank you for reading the description 🙂
