Street view of the space station

Explore ISS

I’ve a fascination with the ISS and I just discovered that Google Maps has a custom street view of the ISS. You can explore the space station like any street (with street view). It’s pretty cool. The images were taken 2 years ago.

When I wander the ISS, I constantly wonder what everything does and why it’s there. In a place like ISS, everything has a purpose. Space is at a premium and it’s expensive to bring stuff on board. Thoughts run through my head; what happens if I push that button? Who are on the photos in the Russian module? Why is that cross there?

I recommend using full-screen and the arrow-keys to move around (if possible).
