Astronaut Packs Massive 800mm Lens For Twitpics From the ISS Porthole
In space, no one can hear your shutter click
Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi has spent his time aboard the International Space Station doing much more than just making sushi to entertain his fellow crew. He’s also taking full advantage of the space station’s new Internet access to stream plenty of Twitpics taken from space And to give all of us Earth-bound folk some sights to remember, he’s using something a bit more advanced than the camera on his iPhone.
According to the EXIF data on his photos, Noguchi is using Nikon’s D2Xs DSLR with a massive 800mm lens to snap space photos of everything from Mount Fuji to the Golden Gate Bridge. We’ve assembled some of his latest work here, while we await Noguchi’s reply via Twitter about how space sushi tastes.
