Kopra returned home from his latest trip to the orbiting laboratory in June 2016, so it seems NASA has been holding on to this potentially record-setting footage for a while, and chose to release it ahead of the 2017 Super Bowl this Sunday (Feb. 5).
NASA has made its presence known at this year's Super Bowl, which will take place in Houston, home of the Johnson Space Center. Leading up to the big game, visitors to Houston can check out a free festival taking place at Discovery Green, located in the city's downtown area. There, the main attraction, called "Future Flight," is a virtual reality roller coaster that simulates a spacecraft landing on Mars.
The free festival features displays, booths and activities created by NASA, as well as by private spaceflight companies, including Boeing, Aerojet Rocketdyne, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Orbital ATK and Raytheon.
