Two Russian Cosmonauts on the Space Station, during a six hour spacewalk on Jan. 27, they install two cameras, that will stream unprecedented footage of our evolving Earth, to everyone, in near real time.   Watch the video…

UrtheCast‘s engineers, have put together another handy video to demonstrate how the cameras will image Earth from the International Space Station.

“Our cameras will constantly be rolling as the ISS circles the world, 16 times a day. They will capture video and imagery below the Station’s orbit, where approximately 90% of the world’s population lives.

The cameras will traverse latitudes ranging from England, to Chile, and everywhere in between.

UrtheCast’s 5-metre resolution camera will capture any location that the ISS passes over, generating large strips of 40km-wide imagery, 365 days a year.”
