    This Astronaut Shot Racetracks from Space with a Nikon DSLR

    NASA astronaut Drew Feustel grew up in Detroit and is an avid car and racing enthusiast. So much so that while commanding the International Space Station in 2018, Feustel photographed racetracks from space with a Nikon DSLR before watching the race itself in his free time.

    “I was always a racing fan, [I] followed IndyCar, Formula One, and MotoGP, and I still follow it to this day,” Feustel says in a new interview with Hot Rod Network. “I keep up on the series, the teams, and the drivers, and because I was a fan I spent time in space taking photos of the entire 2018 season—all of the race tracks […] On the race weekends, I would post the picture of the track, and then watch the race. That was kind of what I did as a hobby while I was up there.”

    Thanks for posting Bob. That is very cool indeed. Especially based on the fact that he used the equivalent of a 1600 mm lens on his hand held (!) Nikon to take the shots. AND he actually could not even see the race track but just aimed in the general direction and hoped!
