THE STREET VIEW FROM ISS

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

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.
