Cameras to send web video from ISS to Earth

Posted:

CAPE CANAVERAL, FL (WKOW) -- Two astronauts on the International Space Station played the roles of spacewalking cable TV installers Monday.

The men made the final hook-ups to a couple of cameras that are pointed back at Earth.

The cameras were first put out last month, but they weren't sending back any images, so the spacewalk involved Russians Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazanskiy tracing the problem and fixing it.

Urthecast, the Canadian company that owns the cameras, plans to post near-real-time video on its website, and sell images, too.
