Live stream The Earth with NASA’s new HD Space Cam


NASA HD space cam earth

If your productivity levels start to plummet after reading this post, blame NASA. The space exploration giant has just finalised a live feed from an HD camera on the International Space Station, which live broadcasts footage of the Earth, 24 hours a day as it orbits the Earth.

It really is pretty epic stuff – the feed even goes dark (sometimes able to pick up the really bright cities of earth) when the ISS reaches the other side of the planet and darkness of night. NASA has said that this isn’t just a feed for stoners and instead is a way to test the outside effects that space has on electronic equipment like video camera as part of something called the HD Earth Viewing Experiment. (yeah sure, we believe you)
