If you have dreams of someday traveling into space, this video might make you drool with anticipation.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst put together this amazing timelapse using 12,500 images taken during his six-month Blue Dot mission aboard the International Space Station.

During his time up there, he had a number of major accomplishments. According to the ESA, these included "installing ESA's furnace that can suspend and cool molten metal in mid-air, a spacewalk to maintain and improve the Space Station, and the docking of Europe's last Automated Transfer Vehicle – the largest spacecraft to supply the research centre."

Gerst would often set up cameras to take photos while he conducted his work, and you can check out his full feed of images on his Flickr page.

Prankster Josh Paler Lin gave $100 to a homeless man on the street, but it wasn't just a random act of kindness. He wanted to know exactly what he would do with the money and capture it on film.

Next thing you know, the guy is walking into a liquor store. But what he buys will surprise you and probably bring a tear to your eye.

"I wasn't expecting to get this kind of footage," he writes in the caption. "To be honest, I thought this video would be more an exposing homeless people video at first. But I'm so glad that I could witness and capture such a beautiful moment."
