I had my own real live version of this going a couple of months back, when the ISS was low overhead and visible enough to see the shape with the "wings" and such. I was sitting out on my balcony watching it and playing banjo for them.
You know, when it comes right down to it, they are not so very far away at all. A long time ago, somebody told me that scaled down to the size of an apple, Earth's atmosphere is thinner than the skin and smoother.
I had absolutely nothing to do with the making of the video. I stumbled upon it in my Twitter feed. I got a big kick out of the banjo playing astronaut and simply thought the banjo aspect might be of interest to some here on BHO.
