Slow Shutter Space Travel Photography

NASA Astronaut Don Pettit has captured images of Earth and the stars beyond in blinding motion.  His slow shutter space photography shows the lights of the world merging into solid trails below the International Space Station.  Pettit sets his camera to a 30-second shutter and snaps multiple exposures for 10-15 minutes at a time.  He then blends all of the images together to expose dreamy, futuristic frames of space travel only as it can be imagined.  Few photographers will be so lucky to have this perspective in this generation.  In the future, the sky is the limit for space travel photography.  [via fstoppers]
