National Geographic: Live From Space

Astronauts aboard the ISS have a unique view of Earth, seeing it without borders but void of humanity. We looked to bridge the gap between life on Earth and in space in order to share our human connections and what’s happening on Earth with the astronauts. Syncing to the ISS, the site displays real-time information about its location and the country currently beneath its orbital path. Popular content (from iTunes, Foursquare and YouTube) for that country is displayed along with similarities linking countries and revealing shared trends. Additionally, everyone can wave to the astronauts by submitting photos/videos via Instagram to a gallery dedicated to them.
