Watch live-streaming of our planet from space. The International Space Station HD Earth Viewing, or HDEV, experiment uses HD cameras on the exterior of the space station to stream live video of Earth for viewing online. Two maps show the station’s location above Earth and a close-up view of that area.
High school students helped design some of the cameras’ components through the “High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware,” or HUNCH, program, and student teams operate the experiment.
