Nikon's history in Space began with the Nikon Photomic FTN, a modified Nikon F camera that was used aboard the Apollo 15 in 1971 and Nikon cameras have been aboard every manned space flight since. This film, edited by SmugMug Films, is a compiled time-lapse video using thousands of still images. The bright flashes are lightning strikes hitting the earth, watch and enjoy.
This is the first of many remarkable moments, both big and small, which we will be sharing in the lead up to celebrating Nikon's 100th Anniversary! Stay tuned for more.
