We've all seen videos of rockets launching from the ground, but what does the event look like from space?
European Astronaut Alexander Gerst, on board the International Space Station, managed to capture time-lapse footage of the Russian Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft flying through Earth's atmosphere on its way to delivering supplies to ISS.
Very few people will ever have the chance to see an event like this in person.

Gerst created the video by setting up a camera to take regular photos through the wrap-around Cupola window of the station, which resulted in a video roughly 16 times faster than real life. Watching the rocket launch in person took 16 minutes but, in Gerst's video, the launch, stage one re-entry, and escape from the atmosphere all occur within one minute.

The rocket in the video, known as Progress 71, was on its way to delivering 5,652 pounds of supplies to ISS. The next flight, pushed back to December 3 after a sensor malfunction resulted in the cancellation of an October 11 liftoff, will bring replacement personnel for NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev. Both have been in orbit since June).

Videos like these are a nice reminder that space truly is the final frontier! If ISS is looking for a soundtrack to put behind their video, we have an idea:

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.
"What is THE best question to ask on a job interview?"
"When you were interviewing here, what would you have liked to know before you joined?"
A Previous Employee
"One that has always gone over well for me:"
Hypothetical questions were suggested as helpful examples of inquiry.
Indicators Of How Companies Treat Employees
"These questions give a lot of insight into whether a company treated their employees well."
Past Performance & Adjustments
Measure Of Success & Career Trajectories
"How is success measured in this role?"
"What are some possible career trajectories within the company that could stem from this position?"
Being A Solution
"What do you like best about working here?"
Simply The Best
"Who is your best employee and why is he/she the best?"
"You will then face 2 situations mostly:"
My experiences with job interviews are different than others seeking work in office environments.
I did not make the cut. And I learned never to ask that again.
People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,
"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"
"It is so wide..."
"A friend did some work..."
Guess what, guys? It's not a joke! Those statues are weird.
Here you go: You're welcome.
"A friend from high school..."
"A woman who owned..."
"I became personal friends..."
"Have the money to support their eccentricity.
Smelling the cows?
Would not recommend.
"I am an art student..."
"Once saw him..."
"I used to 'work' for an Arab billionaire's son, a Daddy's money guy, terrible garbage human being.
Anyway... might as well ask: Any of you rich people out there looking for a poor friend?
Need a houseboy?
Or just someone whose bills you can pay?
I'm totes available.

Redditor ihadanightmarewithu asked:
"What is the scariest / paranormal story you have ever experienced?"
Many people talked about the things that caught their eye once upon a time.
Two Places At Once
"Walked into the kitchen and he was there sorting food out with my friend."
"A floating head."
Presences, Seen and Felt
For others, it was all about the things they heard.
"This is something I've never been able to rationalize."
And the Crying Stopped
Crying From Afar
Finally, some people interacted directly with the spirits.
Advice From Beyond
One Time Only
A Very Helpful Ghost
"The moment I turned around it dropped to the bed."
"That blew my mind!"
Here's hoping you manage to sleep well despite all these spooky stories!
