Here's how to take a 4K tour of the International Space Station

NASA has unveiled an Ultra HD video tour of the International Space Station, giving us earth-dwellers a look at what life on-board is like.

The 18 minute fly-through has been captured in 4K for NASA TV UHD, and provides a look at everything from the panoramic cupola to the holding rooms.

And for those of us without access to NASA TV UHD, there's a video available on that slightly more popular platform: YouTube.

The tour really is stunning, taking us through the ISS, which has living space that equates to that of a five-bedroom house, from module to module.

The video itself has been produced by Harmonic, which according to the firm's website, captures 'beautiful imagery from the space program'.

Using Ultra HD cameras on-board the station, the company provides footage to the NASA TV UHD, which is available on the AMC 18C satellite, with a North American footprint.

Harmonic used a "a fisheye lens for extreme focus and depth of field" when shooting this latest tour of the ISS, according to NASA.
