(CNN) -- Space, like you've never seen it.

This brand-new video from space is so good, you probably won't even grasp its full potential. NASA released the first video from the International Space Station shot entirely in 8K resolution, which has 16 times the number of pixels as a 1080p HDTV.

Here's the catch: Because the technology is so new, few monitors can display it. NASA is way ahead of the (Earth's) curve.
