One of the NASA’s very latest projects run in conjunction with High Schools United and NASA to Create Hardware for there project shortened to – HUNCH

What an exciting opportunity for these students to be involved with and mentored by some of the top scientist and project managers out there.
The HD Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment consists of four cameras attached to the outside of the ISS. The cameras are exposed to the radiation from the sun, which will allow astronauts to understand how radiation affects these types of instruments.
To fully realise that we live on that slowly rotating ball as it spins its way through space is something that I hope will ultimately bring us all together as a planet.
Beautiful and amazing!
(The feed will sometimes go down as the signal switches between the cameras, and it is hard to see when the ISS is on the dark side of the planet. If the cameras are down, the screen will be grey, so come and have a look later!)
