Videos from International Space Station by Soichi Noguchi

Remember Soichi Noguchi, the Japanese astronaut who tweets wonderful pictures of the earth from the International Space Station? Now he has started uploading videos on YouTube. His YouTube channel has just 5 videos at the moment but there are already a thousand subscribers.

The International Space Station orbits the earth at an incredible speed of 27,724 km/hr or 17,227 mph, at an altitude which varies between 278 km (173 miles) and 460 km (286 miles). The videos are in real time and you can see how fast the space station is moving. As a matter of fact, it makes one complete revolution around the earth in only 90 minutes.
