Coming Soon, Your Eyes on the World

Astronaut Chris Hadfield reconnected countless millions of people to the wonders of space.   His space station performance of the David Bowie classic "Space Oddity" has racked up more than 17-million hits on YouTube since its release two months ago.

Now two Vancouver brothers have come up with a venture to let you share something of the experience that crews of the space station enjoy.   Their company has a deal to install and operate two cameras that will be attached to the space station and will stream real time video back to us on terra firma.

One camera will be fixed.  The other will be steerable to allow it to zoom into natural disasters and other events underway on earth.
