    Awesome video game style Radar animations by:
    See the official NASA Space Station Tour:
    A little behind the scenes for this video, early on animating that little mini map Eisen my animator discovered even small errors were very noticeable and distracted from the tour if the map wasn't reflecting reality within a few degrees. Animating anything for 10 minutes is a big deal so instead of trial and error, he put what he knew about the rules of perspective and made this grid system to line things up, all to make the dots on that map in the corner work like you'd expect them to.

    Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
    The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

    Hey Destin, I really enjoy your content... But I have a question, in the upper right corner of the map behind you, I see a device that has indications of GREEN, BLUE, and RED... What is that? and How can I get myself a device like it?

    I like how hes using the word "science" and not "experiment"

    1543 - Jesuits invent Theory Heliocentricism
    1582 - Jesuits invent Heliocentric calendar (Pope Gregorian calendar)
    1651 - Jesuits invent Moon features (Selenography)
    1763 - Jesuits invent Theory Atomic Energy
    1809 - Jesuits invent Theory Transmutation of Species (see Theory of Evolution)
    1923 - Jesuits invent Theory Missing Link (bones lost molds prove find)
    1931 - Jesuits invent Theory Big Bang (another ejaculation into the virgin source)
    As shown, the Judaeo-Freemasonry Vatican (Jesuits) instituted Heliocentricism (a corporation that has fooled billions of people) as the next centuries ticked by these science fiction stories began entering the major Universities (all faith based); from this point on the people were taught to replace Faith with Theory (pretend).
    Lets recap
    The Judaeo-Freemasonry Vatican (Jesuits), see crypto JEWs, sell two (2) products:
    1. HEAVEN, this Faith based religion called Catholicism
    2. SPACE, this Theory based religion called Heliocentricism

      Schpankme Verimuch I only disagree with your apparent science denial. I assume that it does not extend to computers and/or smartphones (after all, you can read and reply to this comment).

    I actually got to walk through some of the original design mock-ups of ISS modules in the late 80's at a McDonald Douglas open house in Long Beach Ca because my grandmother worked there. I think she was a Designer or maybe a Mechanical Engineer. She did the rivet plot plan for the Delta rockets, and electrical plans for the F/A-18 & C-17, but she started there as a riveter and just worked her way up, and my grandfather was a Machinist and Tool & Die Maker there as well.
    Such a cool video. As usual. Keep up the great work. 👍👍

    and over here we do some sciencey stuff and over in this room we got some more science stuff going on. these modules over here can be changed out so we can do different kinds of science things. I found that really amusing.

    I know this video is 3 years old, but I find this walk through so interesting compared to the one titled "ONE OF THE MOST DETAILED ISS TOUR!!!" here on RU-clip. So much creaking in this one because you're walking around in a mock up. Only the hum of machinery really in the other one. No footsteps. Not sure I would have noticed that if I hadn't just watched the other.
