Earth images in 4K [Coffee-byte]
4K displays made quite a furore at tech shows this year and there are many models of 4K TVs that are available in the market to buy. For the uninitiated, 4K resolution, also called Ultra High Definition (UHD), is the next big thing after HD. But what is the use of these TVs or displays when you do not have the content to see.
Well, the European Space Agency has recently released a video of the Earth Images, taken from the International Space Station (ISS) by astronaut, Alexander Gerst. Images that are part of this video were shot through a high resolution (4256 X 2832 pixels) camera on top of the ISS every one second and then sent back to the Earth.
A team at ESA then made this video by playing the still pictures at 25 frames per second and also taking the liberty to add some artistic touches to it.
The resolution for the video here can be raised all the way to 4K but the video is enjoyable even at lesser resolutions! Do post your reactions in the comments section below and subscribe to our blog to get such fascinating news every time!
