One of the great benefits of high speed Internet is that astronauts are more connected to home then ever. In addition to all the valuable science they do up in space, we get the benefit of their presence online and on sites like Twitter, where they can amass huge followings.

NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman and ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst, both part of the current International Space Station (ISS) crew, regularly post amazing photographs of our planet from the orbital outpost. But Wiseman takes it a step farther with his gorgeous #SpaceVines, offering animated views of Earth from above. Here are some of our favorites:
