You probably knew you could pull up Google Street View to check out houses or businesses in your town or around the world. But did you also know you can use it to get a close up 360-degree view of the International Space Station?

Log on to this site and you’re treated to a view of the Cupola, a module designed for the observation of activities outside the station like robotic experiments and the approach of other vehicles.

Just click and drag the cursor around to see views of all of the equipment and the spectacular view that astronauts experience while looking out the windows. The contrast between the ordinary looking controls and the spectacular views of a distant Earth out the windows is nothing short of amazing.
