Would you like to see the Earth from the International Space Station asastronauts see it? It is now possible to see Earth 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through the live transmission of the Space Station’s cameras.
If you are a lover of space or astronomy, you will like ISS onLive.
ISS onLive offers you on live, and in HD quality, the transmission of images of the Earth from the International Space Station by Nasa. You will also be able to experience the day-to-day life of astronauts watching them work inside the ISS.
This application integrates Google Maps to track the orbit of the ISS at all times and allows you to configure parameters such as the choice of different types of maps, satellite or terrain. It also shows telemetry information (speed, altitude, longitude, latitude), as well as the area of the country where the ISS is located. It also has a day/night map of the land with the limits of visibility from the ISS and the user.
In the drawing of the orbits, the visible steps of the ISS are shown in yellow. All this can be customized from the configuration menu of the application.
It has also been added to the Google Maps map the feature of “Map of clouds in the world” in Real Time. You will be able to add to the Google Maps map an extra layer for the visualization of the cloud map of the whole world. In this way you will be able to know the visibility status of the area of the Earth through which the ISS passes and observe it through the HD cameras of the ISS.
