As if being an U.S. Astronaut aboard the International Space Station isn't already cool enough, Reid Wiseman is having all of the fun up there while shooting epic videos and photographs.
Weisman is also a Naval Aviatior, having flown the F-14 Tomcat, F-18 and F-35 Lightning. He's a graduate of the Navy's Test Pilot school and has also received 5 medals for combat operations. He has been with NASA since 2009, and joined the Space Station on May 29, 2014 as a Flight Engineer for Expedition 41.

Wiseman recently told Time:
"We're just lucky to live in this day where, when I take a photograph with a camera… we can email it straight into our Twitter feeds, and it just makes it so much easier to share this experience. It's almost just become a little collateral duty of ours, so you don't even think about it through the day, it's so easy."

The video at the top shows the ISS releasing the Cygnus cargo carrying spacecraft. Wiseman has a pretty active Twitter presence, posting a few times each day with stunning photos and videos like these. You can (and should) follow him here. I'd be doing the same thing if I were up there.
