New Delhi :  

It's just amazing! NASA has released a footage from the ISS that is set to a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s "The Sound of Silence," underscores that fact.
The video was created by Russian astronaut Sergei Ryazanski, Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli and American astronaut Randy Bresnik.

The Shots included in the video were said to be captured from the International Space Station while in low-Earth orbit from August to October 2017. 

"Sharing the incomparable silent beauty of our planet with all our fellow travellers on this, our Spaceship Earth. Our thanks to Mr. Paul Simon and Disturbed,"  NASA says in the video.

"Our thanks to all the people within the partnership of the International Space Station who show us daily what heights we can achieve together."

As former NASA astronaut Garrett Reisman explained to Slate a few years ago, there are still noises when an astronaut steps outside the airlock of the ISS to perform a spacewalk.

"Mostly what you hear is the sound of the pumps and fans that circulate air and water through your suit," he said.

"It's not terribly annoying or anything, but it's not the silent lonely environment with no sound other than your own breathing like often depicted in the movies."
