Waste Some Time with a New Livestream from Space
May 19, 2014 at 9:05 AM
Hereís something to watch thatís even better than the stuff freshly recorded onto your DVR. A few weeks ago a new live feed was flipped on for the first time, and now viewers from across the globe can check out whatís going on out in outer spaceólive.
The link can be found right here, but just note that sometimes things might be a little more interesting than other times. Black scenes are common, as that means itís the night side of the Earth. Sometimes cameras are switching things up, and there are times when the downlink isnít work quite right. Remember that this is a live look into space, so we can expect a couple hiccups in the connectivity every now and then.
Itís called the High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment, and itís doing its thing aboard the International Space Station. The goodies are mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agencyís Columbus moduleójust in case you wanted to know the specific angle.
So there you goóan excellent look into the great beyond, and an even better time waster as you back into the swing of things this week.
