“Because of the particular constraints of living and working in space, it wasn’t possible to collect Street View using Google’s usual methods. Instead, the Street View team worked with NASA at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas and Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama to design a gravity-free method of collecting the imagery using DSLR cameras and equipment already on the ISS. Then I collected still photos in space, that were sent down to Earth where they were stitched together to create panoramic 360 degree imagery of the ISS”. he wrote in his blog post.

“We did a lot of troubleshooting before collecting the final imagery that you see today in Street View,” he said. “There are a lot of obstacles up there, and we had limited time to capture the imagery, so we had to be confident that our approach would work. Oh, and there’s that whole zero gravity thing.”

So, while you’re patiently waiting for your ride to space, why not brush up on your knowledge of the ISS from the comfortable confines of Earth’s surface.
