Falcon Heavy in New York Delta IV Standing Heavy Overlooking the Taj Mahal Rocket Floating Quietly Near Niagara Falls

These everyday scenes are just a few of the places viewers can see today, thanks to a new YouTube video that aims to give vehicles a feeling of greatness made of aluminum and carbon that put satellites, experiments and humans into orbit 59006] Tim Dodd, also known as an online astronaut, created the ethereal video in collaboration with artists Oli Braun and Matthew Nayman who helped in the rendering of the missiles. Dodd creates videos and photos as part of his mission to "bring space for everyday people to Earth".

"It's really hard for people to realize how big rockets are," said Dodd FLORIDA TODAY. "Hopefully there is something in this video that you saw with your own eyes, maybe it's a Walmart, or maybe it's the Arc de Triomphe (France) – hopefully something you've seen with your own eyes, so you

In fact, the video that has shown thousands of views so far shows SpaceX's massive, 230 foot Falcon Heavy Rocket in New York City and in front of a Walmart; United Launch Alliance's 236 foot high Delta IV Heavy in India; an enhanced version of the NASA's 384-foot space launch system next to the Brooklyn Bridge; and SpaceX & # 39; Big Falcon Rocket (about 350 feet) in a field with Dodd standing by, just to name a few.

"It's very humbling to realize how hard it is to get off our planet, and how much brilliant technology and mechanics goes into space travel," he said.

Dodd, 33, was inspired to become the Everyday Astronaut in April 2014 when a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket crashed on a mission to deliver supplies to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral. A bright orange Russian flight suit, which he had bought as a joke the year before, suddenly became the center of his new online personality – Dodd puts on the suit for all his videos.

"I'm happy," he said in mid-2017, only the person of the Everyday Astronaut started to start. Since then, his YouTube videos alone have produced millions of views, and his channel has more than 100,000 subscribers.

"I'll keep doing this until I run out of energy or run out of energy, and so far, I still go," he said.
