An Italian student film maker has put together a video capturing the spirit of hope and international co-operation involved in the running of the International Space Station.

Giacomo Sardelli created the timelapse video using pictures from the Nasa's Image Science & Analysis Laboratory at Johnson Space Center, and Nasa audio of messages from the station's numerous crew members over the years.
