Where form meets function

NASA has launched a new NASA TV UHD series, in which they are taking ultra-high definition video to a completely new level. As the world’s leader in space exploration, NASA continues to be at the forefront of interstellar travel, all while providing us lowly humans here on earth with footage we would normally not be able to experience.

Accordingly, here we get a look at some stunning ultra-high definition footage of Aurora Borealis that was produced exclusively for NASA. The timelapse clip was captured from NASA’s Harmonic international Space Station, in turn detailing what occurs when electrically charged electrons and protons in the Earth’s magnetic field collide with neutral atoms in the upper atmosphere.
