    We stream live views from the International Space Station every minute of every day, so long as we have a data stream. You can view it on the NASA TV page at http://www.nasa.gov/ntv and clicking on the Space Station Views in the right column next to the player. You can also access it directly at: http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/iss_ustream.html

  2. I do love the Live ISS feed, but being able to select which active camera to view would be awesome. Why not include a zoom feature as well? Something like what Earthcam.com has on most of it's live feeds, where one can zoom in and move around an image. Thank you, and keep up the good work!

    1. Think about it, just launching a couple of cameras with desent image resolution (heavier) could easily cost more than a thousand dollars. Not because of the cameras, but for the rocket fuel. I would rather have my cash fund something more usefull or interesting (like a live mission to mars in less than 20 years)

    2. @harkinsmax, there are already cameras on the ISS, this discussion isn't about installing new ones but simply providing better view from the old ones. Developer dollars, not fuel dollars.

      Maybe if you would try reading the idea or the comment before replying you would get a better reaction.

    3. Yes there are cameras, but only some. If you want many live feeds, there will ultamatly be costs involved. Also, can I mention the fact that pre-existing cameras are usually in use for other things? Although we can live stream using some pre existing cameras, we would need to launch more for the scale that people are disscussing. Also, if you have info that we dont, post the link.

  4. I like live events and I'd like more, as Curiosity landing ; but ISS can't be a 24/24 reality show on free per view imho.

  5. Yes, more detailed coverage will be helpfull for us

  6. It would be cool if everyone have the opportunity to choose one of the many ISS cameras and watch it live. From inside, outside... Not only the video showed in NASA TV.

    1. I think they already have these.

    2. I would like to watch the crew activities live but this is a trick subject because privacy is important to crew and when they are doing an activity they need concentration and attention. In many activities live without explanation we wouldn't understand what they are doing. There are some activities live like spacewalk and others, but we want more activities live. For example show the experiments with the spiders,insulin crystals growth and all scientific experiments in the microgravity. I guess there are few videos like this from ISS.

    3. But many cameras means many separate broadcast and many more unnecessary spend energy, this may reduce the potential

    4. @Robert Niznansky, the cameras are already in place and streaming, the streams simply aren't available to the public.

  7. The ISS website http://spacestationlive.nasa.gov/ should provide more external cameras views where each user could select the best view at any time.

    Also i would suggest NASA to provide more information regarding timing about future launches either to the ISS and/or satellites, probes and rovers.

    Thanks

    2. Actually there is one live stream. Here : http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/iss_ustream.html

    4. The logistics of this idea will be a nightmare. Who gets on when and for how long? See the problem? I would like to see this happen but ...

  9. It would be greate to view Earth from ISS cameras.

  10. Itis better to put the cameras of the ISS in separated Ustream broadcasts because all the cameras in one broadcast is bad to see.

  11. When the live feed brought out the matter of fact,it is more likeable to view within the global MAPS.

  12. While the current feed from the ISS is awesome, being able to select the camera I am viewing would only make it better. Looking around the ISS and getting to know it and maybe checking out other views of things, flipping between them. Offering the various streams for user choice would be an awesome thing.

  13. While I do like the idea (which apparently isn't 100% new), I also agree with what ViSousa said. The ISS crew has a right to privacy and they didn't exactly sign up to be on a reality show. It's an interesting idea, but one that needs to be considered carefully.

  14. I would really love this as well, and maybe once a day the crew members could drop in and give us an update.

    1. They already do.

  15. Have a link prominently displayed on mission sites of live audio only feeds from specific missions. People could stream or subscribe via rss to various missions.

  16. This is an absolutely wonderful idea. Be sure to allow the crew to be able to switch the camera off when they want privacy. Also it would be nice if I could subscribe to some form of notification when some event is taking place around the space station, such as a UFO flying by or tracking the station. Also whenever there is an arrival and departure event taking place, but especially when a UFO is around.
