See Earth and the ISS in 8K Video from NASA

The ISS has a new Helium 8K RED camera for astronauts to use. Check out the first 8K video released by NASA that features stunning footage.

Genuine 8K content may be tough to come by but NASA has posted a 3-minute montage on YouTube that will test your broadband connection and provide an impeccably sharp streaming feed of a truly phenomenal visual treat. And what's more, NASA is providing the original footage for download, so if you have an actual 8K TV, such as Samsung's 85" Q900F, you can load the file onto a USB stick and watch it in full resolution.

I don't have an 8K TV.

And I think my ATV4k has some issues with YouTube... I don't tend to use YouTube so I don't know but I've heard there's some sort of issue with the YouTube codec and ATV4K.

Maybe I can get around that by Downloading it though. I guess I'll watch it first on youtube anyway to see if the content is interesting.

1. How cool!!

2. On my rec709 calibrated 4K monitor it looks a bit washed out...needs contrast perhaps?

3. RED cameras are sick. I've ogled their medium format stuff for a while.

Yes, outer space should be pitch black but it's rendered as a dark gray here. The footage needs a bit of post processing to give it that "Hollywood gloss"

In photoshop I can see that if I manually apply "video levels" it snaps into place. So yeah it's just raw footage.

When I try to download it from the Nasa site, it doesn't do anything more than open up a new tab and start playing the video.....?? It's shows Small, Medium, Large, Original, and CC. I've tries Large and Original. The tab for large actually plays the video, the tab for original only plays the audio. (Firefox). Safari does nothing except open a new tab, no playing. What am I doing wrong?
