Stunning time lapse footage from the ISS

Buckling under the daily strain of the inbox? You're about to gain some serious perspective. 

Drifting some 400km above the surface of the Earth, snapping along at a nifty five miles per second, the view from the window of the International Space Station has to be amongst the most distracting vistas in the history of mankind. 

The following compilation of timelapses and high definition shots has been compiled by Dmitry Pisanko, splicing together some 109 GB of video files from NASA's Gateway to Astronaut Photography of the Earth programme.

Taking in lightning storms, the aurora borealis and illuminated city scapes, it plays out like the exact opposite of Gravity.

That's it - we're moving to space.
