Just over a year ago, the Street View platform launched a special one that invited users to get to know the international space station through a series of 360-degree images. But you knew you could navigate around the research center as if you were going through a neighborhood Google Maps.
When Google collaborated with space crews from the ISS to capture images of its science laboratories, work areas and impressive dome with a beautiful view of the Earth, the company has deployed technology so that it can be seen all its platforms. of navigation.
Street View is characterized by the presentation of 360-degree special images of different places and events. Instead, Google Maps It offers locations where it integrates photos of the aforementioned platform locations so that users can better position themselves in the real world.
However, when it comes to a specialty from a place that is not in the terrestrial world, it's almost impossible to find it on a map. but Google Maps has activated its platform in order to find the International Space Station as the one looking for a business address or a friend's home when looking for "NASA".
In this way, allowing navigation as a terrestrial street, the application increases what Thomas Pesquet, the astronaut who helped collect images, said when describing his experience: "it helps describe the feeling of being in space."
