The ISS Tracker of the International Space Station
The ISS International Space Station with the ESA laboratory and the associated EAS ISS Tracker on board flies at an altitude of about 400 kilometers. With a speed of about 28,800 kmh, it defies the earth’s gravitational force and orbits the earth. In weightlessness the International Space Station ISS with the ISS Tracker only takes 90 minutes to circumnavigate the Earth once. Astronauts who live and work on the International Space Station experience 16 sunrises and sunsets every day. Is not that fantastic?
The above ISS Tracker, also shows the exact location of the International Space Station. In addition, at the time of the call, he also illustrates his trajectory in the previous and upcoming 90 minutes. Below the ISS Tracker one can see in the graph enlarged the exact location on the earth that whole is represented with the help of Google Earth. As soon as the trajectory of the International Space Station overlaps with your place of residence, you can see the space station with the naked eye with the help of the ISS tracker. If you are lucky, the International Space Station will be flying over the city several times a day.
ISS Tracker and ISS Live Stream
NASA has now assembled several HD cameras to the ISS Tracker at the ISS International Space Station and is now sending this ISS Live Stream via USTREAM. This allows all people to look at breathtaking live images of the International Space Station and the Earth.
The ISS Live Stream shows live images of the earth taken by a camera on the ISS. They give an impression of the views that astronauts have on our planet every day. Without the Earth’s atmosphere that protects us, we and everything else on the Earth would be exposed to cosmic radiation and the sun’s rays. The images are part of NASA’s HDEV experiment to determine how quickly the image quality of the cameras changes under the influence of the extreme radiation conditions, but the ISS Tracker does not matter very much. Sometimes the picture is black, because the connection to ground station breaks, that can happen sometimes. You should just go ahead and check it out later. The connection to the ISS Tracker and the ISS Live Stream in HD builds up again within minutes.
ISS Tracker – International Space Station Location / Other Satellites
Observation of the International Space Station with the ISS Tracker too boring? You are interested in another satellite in the universe? Various flight paths of satellites are selectable here, for example, that Hubble Space Telescope in Tracking View, Tiagong and many others. All satellites can be observed on the computer at home. Here, the positions of satellites and space stations in the secondary clock are updated. You can easily navigate with the ISS Tracker between, International Space Station and the other satellites, also track several at the same time with the exact trajectory. This can be selected in the upper tracker graph. You can choose different runways. You can combine the trajectory and location of the International Space Station (ISS), the Hubble Space Telescope, the Tiagong and more. The display and the positions with running tracks are updated automatically and in the secondary stroke. In addition, the ISS Tracker is free of charge in real-time and, of course, free of charge.
