As if being an astronaut wasn't already cool enough, you won't believe just how much high-level Nikon gear is on board the International Space Station. It's basically a photographer's dream, unless you shoot Canon, of course.
Astronaut Alexander Gerst is currently on board the International Space Station, orbiting Earth at about 17,500 mph. He recently tweeted a couple of photos of him getting a haircut, but what's more intriguing are the massive walls of camera gear behind him, some of which includes some very expensive glass.
Of course, another advantage of being on the ISS is how easy it is to handhold all those heavy supertelephoto lenses. No monopod necessary! I was able to pick out at least 5 camera bodies and 17 lenses in the shots, though there might be more, and that's not including the video cameras also there.
