YouTube is celebrating 50 years of manned space flight by premiering a feature length film which recreates Yury Gagarin’s first orbit in outer space. The film combines original audio and video recordings of the flight with HD footage taken from the International Space Station. A new score was written epsessially for the piece by composer Philip Sheppard.
Astronauts on board the International Space Station have captured a true-colour image of the extensive flooding hitting Australia. This newly released photograph shows Brisbane River flooding parts of the suburbs of Brisbane.
