Wouldn’t it be amazing to sit aboard the International Space Station, watching Earth’s continents and oceans pass by as you orbit the planet?
Well you might be able to soon. If a startup called Urthecast has its way, you’ll soon be able to replicate that experience from your computer, thanks to HD cameras mounted on the station to stream near real-time video of Earth 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It will be the first-ever HD streaming video feed of Earth from space, and will let viewers discern objects as small as one meter wide.
Check this out.
The company’s cameras are being built right now, says co-founder Scott Larson, and will be completed in early summer. Then they’ll be shipped to Russia, where the Russian Federal Space Agency will schedule them for transport to the station. Larson says the system should be fully up and running early next year.
