UrtheCast

UrtheCast

UrtheCast was created around a unique vision: to provide the world’s first ever, near real-time HD video feed of Earth from space. Working in an exclusive relationship with the Russian Aerospace giant RSC Energia, UrtheCast has built, launched, installed, and will soon be operating two cameras on the Russian module of the International Space Station. Starting in 2014, video of the Earth collected by our cameras will be down-linked to ground stations around the planet and then displayed on the UrtheCast web platform and distributed directly to our exclusive partners and customers.
