Video of the Day: Spaceship's Fiery Re-Entry

The astronauts aboard the International Space Station have shared some amazing images of Earth from their extreme bird's-eye view from space. This video taken by astronaut Mike Fossum shows the journey of a Progress re-supply ship back toward Earth, where it is naturally and purposefully destroyed when entering the atmosphere.

Progress ships are used solely to ferry goods to the space station, so instead of leaving them in orbit to become space junk, they are sped down upon re-entry and burn up in the Earth's atmosphere, which is what's seen in NASA's footage below.
