    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!

                              *WHO INVENTED THE SPACE ENTERPRISE?*
                              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 - doesn’t believe in science because he’s too stupid to experiment and prove it on his own, but believes in some god even though he can’t prove it.

                                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. 👍👍
