Let me start by saying a big OMG! If you’re a bit of a space fan, or just like the idea of watching Earth from space live in HD you will love Urthecast.com when it launches soon.
So I heard about this today on Mashable.com and at first I was so excited I couldn’t contain myself – then I was like, it’s not April Fools’ Day is it? Because this sounds like it could be one of those jokes. But no it is legitimate and if Urthecast has its way you will be able to stream real-time video of Earth 24 hours a day, seven days a week thanks to HD cameras mounted on the International Space Station. It’s going to be like Google satellite view but live! Now imagine that.
