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.
The script is online as a PDF file under http://television.esa.int/photos/EbS48928.pdf
A quicktime preview clip (without voiceover) is online under http://esatv-movies.e-vision.nl/videos/Astrolab/230107%20Postflight%20English%2016min/Astrolab%20Postflight%20Presentation%20english%2016%20min-h264%20.mov
