NASA TV (ISS) – Live!

NASA TV (ISS) – Live!

NASA TV (ISS) or International Space Station provides an internal, encrypted feed for NASA spaceflight operations. It also features continuous live footage from inside and outside the ISS.

NASA TV (ISS) features internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During “loss of signal” periods, viewers may see a test pattern or a graphical world map that depicts the station’s location in orbit above the Earth. When the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it experiences a sunrise or a sunset about every 45 minutes. And when the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below.
