The video was made by David Peterson by stitching together time-lapse photography taken from the International Space Station over several missions.

Much of the footage was taken by astronaut Don Pettit. David writes:

The goal with this sequence was to bring a bit more attention to the station itself, including the humans aboard it, particularly Don Pettit (appearing in the final shot) who took many of the sequences in this montage.

Basically, it’s like being in Gravity.
