There has a lot of demand for a shorter English version of the German-language Astrolab Post-Flight Presentation released last week.

Today's transmission satisfies this in the form of a 16-minute summary of the Astrolab mission, featuring the best images from 166 days in space, much of the footage shot by Thomas Reiter himself.
