Take a 3-D Tour of the International Space Station

ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli shot some 3-D video during his 6 months on board the International Space Station (Dec 2010 to May 2011) and the footage has now been put together into a “tour” of the space station. Nespoli and the crew used ESA’s Erasmus Recording Binocular (ERB-2) stereoscopic camera, capturing “day-in-the-life” activiites on the ISS, from educational activities, to scientific experiments and physical training, also demonstrating the way astronauts move in weightlessness through the various modules. So, grab your red/blue 3-D glasses to watch the video.

ERB-2 was used on August 6, 2011 by astronaut Ron Garan to broadcast live 3-D video from space.

The ERB-2 is the about the size of a shoebox, with high-definition optics and advanced electronics.

  1. Cool video! One thing that tends to stand out is how careful the astronauts must have to be while ‘flying around’ in the lab modules… as there are so many things to bump in to! CAREFUL! I wonder if any experiments have been ruined by “Oops’es” ?
