View a live feed of the Earth from the ISS

Post by JazHaz »

The recent SpaceX Dragon capsule that was sent to the International Space Station, amongst other things, brought a high definition camera system called High-Definition Earth Viewing experiment or HDEV. The camera has been mounted to the European Columbus module and has begun streaming live pictures of the Earth from orbit.

Read more on the Spaceflight Now website, or view the stream here: HDEV experiment
