So is my office window.

I've checked out that site several times now and I've yet to see one damn glimpse of anything but gray or black screen

That's because it's night in space, duhhhhh.

Or, at the moment, a live feed of confused Brazilians, apparently

They have to turn on the lights in the studio once in a while, don't they?
 
2014-05-08 01:00:42 PM
Ah... there's a couple of Soyuz capsules visible now
 
2014-05-08 01:03:40 PM
Ok... now that's pretty cool

Your office is IN SPACE?!

Here is a link to track the ISS.  http://www.isstracker.com/  I used to have a similar link for tracking the Vogon Constructor Fleet but seem to have misplaced it.

There's the Earf.
 
2014-05-08 02:00:00 PM
I can't see shiat. I'll wait 45 minutes until it's on the sunny side of the Earf.

Can't they use a flash or something?  NASA is so broke they hang their toilet paper out to dry.

HD camera's, broadcasting in 480p?
Am I missing something?
 
2014-05-08 02:26:44 PM
I don't suppose they could point one of them the other way? I want to see the stars from orbit. We have seen the earth tons of times.
 
2014-05-08 02:27:09 PM
Heh. I can see my house. I'm gonna go outside and wave my penis at space!

Proper use of apostrophes, for one thing.

Mods pimped us by greenlighting the page as the ISS went orbited into nighttime.

Well, to be fair, it might be the improper use of a comma.

"HD Camera is broadcasting in 480p?" is a valid question.
 
2014-05-08 02:33:44 PM
Frickin' awesome!
 
2014-05-08 02:34:14 PM
Sunrise visible now...

Uzzah: Heh. I can see my house. I'm gonna go outside and wave my penis at space!


Not even the CIA has a telescope powerful enough to see that.

I just watched an arm of the ISS fade in to view as the station left Earth's penumbra. Then the camera switched and I watched the horizon appear as the station left the umbra.
Pretty wild.

Noted, and the other thing?
 
2014-05-08 02:59:56 PM
What's wrong with the audio?
 
2014-05-08 03:24:59 PM
The first useful thing accomplished by the ISS
 
2014-05-08 03:27:32 PM
just flew into the night.

this is awwwesome
 
2014-05-08 03:44:41 PM
Kinda boring... live video from space.
 
2014-05-08 03:58:17 PM
Thanks Russia
 
2014-05-08 04:01:08 PM
It's currently on the Pink Floyd side of the Earth.
 
2014-05-08 04:06:53 PM
Big deal, I can see the Earth from right where I'm at.
 
2014-05-08 04:11:53 PM
Video looks a bit smudgy, doesn't it? Guess they don't have window-washing bums in Space.
 
2014-05-08 04:50:25 PM
Well, that's right in my farking wheelhouse. They need to adjust the exposure on one of the cameras, the bits of the ISS in frame are well-lit but the curve of the Earth is quite a bit overexposed.
 
2014-05-08 04:59:28 PM
I waved at the camera, did you see me?
 
2014-05-08 05:10:44 PM
I'm still only seeing blackness and occasional gray. Is it broken? :(
 
2014-05-08 05:13:17 PM

Slaxl: I'm still only seeing blackness and occasional gray. Is it broken? :(



its on the dark side right now, so teh video looks black, the grey is when its switching cameras, which will also be black. come back in ~25 min and it will be on the light side again

This is the internet, I can't be expected to wait! I'm going to defund NASA instead.
 
2014-05-08 05:57:50 PM
Wow, the forward view is bright, compared to the aft view (with the two capsules visible). Is that just due to the cloud cover over the Pacific right now?

J. Frank Parnell: It's on a delay now i'll bet.


Wow. You found some retards there!

For something of that size we would need turn the Hubble turmed around and zoomed it at its maximum range. Or we could just bring him to an electron microscope on Earth. We could use the shadow of a Hydrogen atom for scale.

Cool. It would be even cooler if you could toggle the Lat/Lon of the current view in a separate track or a box at the bottom.

hasn't got any.

There was supposed to be some Vogon poetry, but the sound engineer kept bleeding from the ears.

You can watch it from here. Has the cam feed + another window with a map of current position, lon/lat, alt, and speed
