This is the first Vine ever to be sent from Space

Astronaut Reid Wiseman is on the case.

ASTRONAUT REID WISEMAN has only been on the International Space Station for a week and already he’s delivering the goods.

Wiseman has tweeted the first Vine from Space; a time-lapse of a single earth orbit by the ISS, with the sun in constant sight.

Wiseman explains in his tweet that the reason for the sun never setting is because the space station is “flying parallel w/terminator line”.

A few days ago he had given a heads up as to what that actually means:

Now that Commander Chris Hadfield is back on solid ground after months of entertaining and educating us with his ISS tweets and videos, maybe Wiseman is your new must-have Twitter follow?

DailyEdge.ie are fans already. Fascinating stuff:

 

He’s even done a Space selfie:
