RED’s HELIUM Sensor Captures 8K Imagery from the International Space Station
November 6th, 2018

Today, NASA and the European Space Agency published imagery shot on RED’s HELIUM 8K S35 sensor. Shot from the International Space Station this past April, the RED camera captured astronauts at work in microgravity along with stunning images of Earth from an altitude of more than 200 miles above the ground.

“We’re excited to embrace new technology that improves our ability to engage our audiences in space station research,” said David Brady, assistant program scientist for the International Space Station Program Science Office at Johnson. “Each improvement in imagery fidelity brings that person on Earth closer to the in-space experience, allowing them to see what human spaceflight is doing to improve their life, as well as enable humanity to explore the universe.”

RED is honored to support NASA’s stated mission to “Drive advances in science, technology, aeronautics, and space exploration to enhance knowledge, education, innovation, economic vitality and stewardship of Earth”.
