Earth emerges from shadow in Nasa time lapse of astronauts installing solar panels

Guardian, 21 Jun 2021
French and American astronauts have completed a six-hour spacewalk as they installed new solar panels to boost power supplies to the International Space Station (ISS). In time lapse footage taken at 10x speed, Earth pulls into frame as astronauts float outside the station on Sunday 20 June as they begin the 19-metre panels, which will power daily operations and the research and science projects carried out on the ISS. The panels are expected to have a 15-year lifespan.
