Live Space Station Video Empty Live Space Station Video

Post  John Drake Wed Sep 23, 2009 1:06 pm


Live Space Station Video includes Earth views from external cameras on the International Space Station during crew off duty periods, selected in cabin views of crew activities during the crew on duty periods, and a graphical world map that depicts the station’s location in orbit above the Earth using real time telemetry sent to Mission Control from the station.

The video stream is accompanied by audio of communications between Mission Control and the astronauts when available. During times when the shuttle is docked to the station, the stream will include video and audio of those activities.

Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it sees a sunrise or a sunset every 45 minutes. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but also may provide spectacular views of city lights below.

The streaming video is being webcast as part of NASA's celebration of the 10th anniversary of the space station in orbit.
