If you’d have asked most people a few decades ago if they wanted a picture of every street address in the world, they would have probably looked at you like you were crazy. But turns out that Google Street View is handy for several reasons. Sure, it is easy to check out the neighborhood around that cheap hotel before you book. But it is also a great way to visit places virtually. Now one of those places is the International Space Station (ISS).
[Thomas Pesquet] in a true hack used bungee cords and existing cameras to take panoramas of all 15 ISS modules. Google did their magic, and you can enjoy the results. You can also see a video on how it was all done, below.
One interesting feature is the addition of pop-up annotations. This is a new feature for Google, but likely to appear in other street view venues, as well.
If space isn’t your thing, there are other interesting tours like locations for Game of Thrones, the oceans, Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal, and more. Perhaps you’d like to jog through the ISS, assuming you don’t mind pretending there is artificial gravity. Or you can take a break from the large ISS and try something a bit smaller.
