NASA’s view from above (Video)

I barely am over my fear of flying (learning how a plane works helped). However, the idea of boarding a tourist space shuttle still seems terrifying beyond belief. Thankfully, NASA just put out a tour guide of the world, showing some of the most beautiful sites astronauts look for in flight.
