The footage in this fascinating timelapse was shot by the crew aboard the International Space Station in 2011, and gives us a surreal perspective of our planet. Gliding at an altitude of 350 km over lightning storms and cities, it reminds and suggests the delicate balance of life taking place here. The quest for the answers to who we are, how we got here, and where we're going — at least by my considerations — starts with going outside and looking up, down and around. A trip to the ISS seems, apparently, to be all about asking those same elemental questions. Anyway, stunning views of the planet for the next 5 minutes right here on your screen. Existential questions are up to you.

The Sunday Morning Chillax? Here's the idea. It's Sunday. You're up early. You're enjoying a cup of coffee in the quiet morning while your kids sleep in. No need to read, this is always a video; something to give you happy thoughts about mountains, fresh air, stoke, fun, or being outside. Enjoy. Relax. And, um, not guaranteed to be weekly — hey, you get what you pay for and it's a dang good bargain.
