Donald Pettit on taking photos in Space

I was lucky enough to see this fabulous talk by NASA Astronaut Donald Pettit in person a few weeks ago here in New York at the Luminance Conference. Donald Pettit has called the International Space Station home for a total of 370 days. While there, he’s captured some of the most mind-blowing photos of space – and Earth – we’ve ever seen. In his talk Donald gives us an inside look into what it’s like to take photos of space, why bringing 10 DSLRs with him is actually necessary, and the reason why hard drives tend to fail in zero gravity.
