ESA astronaut André Kuipers stay on the International Space Station started on Dec 23rd and shall continue till July 1st 2012. Beside his demanding tasks as flight engineer for Expedition 30, Andre is providing us amazing space imagery of the Earth and of the life and work on-board the ISS and for the first time digital 3D still imagery of cosmonauts carrying out extra vehicular activities in their space suits. This short clip collects 3D images taken with the Erasmus Recording Binocular (ERB-2) and some still pictures from a Fuji w3. Stereoscopic images are a unique tool to provide the viewer with a sense of presence in the constrained and dense habitat the astronauts live in.
Stereoscopic 3D glasses are required to properly enjoy the full 3D effect of this footage.
