THE STREET VIEW FROM ISS
You’ve used Google Street View to check out a new apartment or map traffic before you hit the road. Now, the comprehensive terrestrial mapping system has gone Extra-Terrestrial, allowing users to peer inside the International Space Station from their computer 248 miles below with 360-degree, panoramic views. The Street View imagery was captured by Thomas Pesquet, an astronaut with the European Space Agency, who spent six months aboard the ISS before returning to Earth in June. This street view image is from the Joint Airlock, an area that contains space suits, also known as Extravehicular Mobility Units, which provide crew members doing extravehicular activity with life support.
