Live streaming video by Ustream
Now you can pass time at work looking at Earth from space. Last week the International Space Station started streaming footage from 4 cameras on the outside of the space station, all pointed at Earth. The steam goes blank every once in awhile to either switch cameras or because of interference. Watching it a bit today, I found there was a lot of dust on the lens or the housing of them. There’s a lot of light refracting back. Someone should be responsible for going out and cleaning those off every few days.
