Google Maps Launched Outer Space Trip in its Street View
In an honor to mark the 48-year anniversary of the first manned moon landing, Google launched a new street view collection. You can tour the all 15 modules of the ISS. This is time in history people can able to see locations in outer space.
How Navigation will work?
We all know there is no gravity. Than how street view spans 360 degrees in space? To achieve this, astronauts make use of surfaces in every direction. Moreover, Google include info nodes to have the in-depth knowledge about the station’s technical machinery and points of interest.
To develop this Google took the help of NASA, European Space Agency (ESA), the Russian space agency Roscosmos, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) to capture the footage.
While Street View’s controls are a little wonky for three-dimensional navigation, it’s still a fascinating and accessible tour of a place many of us will never see in person.
