First, man walked on the moon. Then, there were tweets from space, YouTube videos from space, selfies from space and Instagrams from space.
Now, at long last, we can feast our eyes on a Vine video from space.
NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman posted the first Vine video from the International Space Station on Friday. The six second looping video shows a single Earth orbit, which usually takes 92 minutes on the ISS — but it's just six seconds here.
Wiseman explains in the Vine video's caption that the sun never sets in the footage because the space station is currently traveling parallel with the Earth's "terminator line" — the line which separates the day and night surfaces of the Earth.
Thanks for the view.
