NASA astronaut's amazing snaps from Space


Other people's holiday snaps are notoriously boring, but NASA astronaut Don Petit has a slide show from his recent trip that you'd be quite happy to sit through.

Satellite photos of taken in space might be relatively plentiful these days, but Petit's images demonstrate the difference between any old photo of something amazing and a really great photo of something amazing.

Fastcodesign.com have footage of his recent talk at a conference in New York, in which Petit describes his techniques and experiences.
