Live NASA 24-Hour High Definition TV & International Space Station HD Videos
Below are three links to 24-Hour Live Space Video Feeds, carried by USTREAM, on this page and in Navigation Bar courtesy of NASA. Under that are links to a number of pages featuring really AMAZING NASA Ultra High Definition of all kinds of space related materials. They all provide an interesting look at the world of space exploration as new developments and discoveries, along with new companies like SpaceX and United Launch Alliance, highlight the exciting world of outer space and how that impacts life on Earth.
They involve two live feeds from the International Space Station, both working intermittently depending on time of day or activity involved, while the interesting NASA TV Education is a constant feed with all with kinds of news stories, live updates on NASA activities, educational programming, documentaries, ISS updates and stories, background on Research and Development at NASA and more.
The first live feed from the Space Station has crew interactions, including audio, between themselves and Flight Control Room 1 in Houston, a newly updated facility just down the hall from its predecessor at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. The second is a 24-Hour Video feed from ISS and the third a 24-Hour HD Video Experiment Feed only with views of Earth from outside of ISS.
NASA 24-Hour Public Education Video Feed Carried by USTREAM
NASA TV airs a variety of regularly scheduled, pre-recorded educational and public relations programming 24 hours a day on its various channels. Programs include “NASA Gallery”, which features photographs and video from NASA’s history; “Video File”, which broadcasts b-roll footage for news and media outlets; “Education File”, which provides special programming for schools; “NASA Edge” and “NASA 360”, hosted programs that focus on different aspects of NASA; and “This Week @ NASA”, which shows news from NASA centers around the country. Live ISS coverage and related commentary is aired daily at 11 a.m. EST and repeats throughout the day.
The network also provides an array of live programming, such as 24-hour coverage of Space Shuttle missions, ISS events (spacewalks, media interviews, educational broadcasts), press conferences and rocket launches. These often include running commentary by members of the NASA Public Affairs Office who serve as the “voice of Mission Control,” including Rob Navias, Josh Byerly, Nicole Cloutier and Brand
NASA Live 24-Hour Space Station Video Feed Carried by USTREAM
Live video from the International Space Station includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground.
During “loss of signal” periods, viewers will see a blue screen. Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90-minutes, it experiences a sunrise or a sunset about every 45 minutes. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below.

A tip on the Space Station 24-Hour HD Earth Viewing Experiment on USTREAM HDEV VIDEO*** Black Image = International Space Station (ISS) is on the night side of the Earth.—-
No Audio = Normal. There is no audio by design. Add your own soundtrack.

The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS was activated April 30, 2014. It is mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agency’s Columbus module. This experiment includes several commercial HD video cameras aimed at the earth which are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing. Video from these cameras is transmitted back to earth and also streamed live on this channel. While the experiment is operational, views will typically sequence though the different cameras.
Between camera switches, a gray and then black color slate will briefly appear. Since the ISS is in darkness during part of each orbit, the images will be dark at those times. During periods of loss of signal with the ground or when HDEV is not operating, a gray color slate or previously recorded video may be seen.
Analysis of this experiment will be conducted to assess the effects of the space environment on the equipment and video quality which may help decisions about cameras for future missions. High school students helped with the design of some of the HDEV components through the High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) program. Student teams will also help operate the experiment.

NASA 4K Ultra High Definition Videos
On the NASA website are a number of new 4K Ultra High Definition Videos that are truly amazing. From views of Solar Flares and Sun Activity to work on the International Space Station, from views of Planet Earth to research or the way things react to the space environment. A number of have been showcased on pages created for this site, see links below, with explanations and links to more materials from NASA and the various related agencies. In the years ahead knowledge will be pouring faster than it can comprehended or understood from all the galaxies. It is really a time to behold in terms of space discovery, especially for those who lived through the Space Race of the Cold War with the Soviet Bloc and all the political tension brought on from brutal contest of will power and fire power.
