A new, high-definition, live-stream video showing Earth in real-time might potentially be the beginning of the world’s largest reality show. NASA said that the cameras taking the videos are in a pressurized box filled with dry nitrogen at atmospheric pressure to protect them from the elements of space. The views from the High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment make it easier to imagine what it might be like to be an astronaut. NASA hopes to learn how cameras function in the extreme radioactive environment of low-earth orbit. Meanwhile, Bruce Kasanoff at Forbes praised the feed, saying no one should miss the view, even recommending the purchase of larger TV screens to get better views. (Image Credit: NASA)
