In this virtual reality simulation, you are in a spacesuit making a virtual spacewalk in earth space. Find your way to the ISS (International Space Station – thanks NASA) .

Enjoy the beautiful view on earth from outer space.

We mapped all the hires (day and night time) textures provided by NASA onto the earth sphere so the view is really breath taking. When the earth turns to the night side, the city lights switch on.
