Only a few of the lucky and talented ones get the opportunity to experience the life of space. Google’s expedition is already helping people to explore and experience around 600 famous locations around the globe with the help of the VR (Virtual Reality). now Google gives you an opportunity to move away from your access zone to straight in space.

There were an immense amount of challenges faced by Google to achieve this. The panoramic 360-degree imagery of the ISS couldn’t be created using Google Street View’s usual methods. So, to overcome that, Google joined hands with NASA to create a “gravity-free method” of collecting pictures using DSLR cameras.

“We did a lot of troubleshooting before collecting the final imagery that you see today in Street View. The ISS has technical equipment on all surfaces, with lots of cables and a complicated layout with modules shooting off in all directions—left, right, up, down,” said an astronaut involved in the program.
