Google Street View now lets users take a trip into space aboard the ISS

Have you ever dreamed of seeing the Earth from space? Not many people can make such a dream come true, which is why Google is lending a helping hand to those with near impossible dreams.

Starting today, Google Street View lets you explore the ISS (International Space Station) and have a peek at the Earth from the outer space. You'll be able to “float” through all the modules that form up ISS while receiving detailed information about what you see directly from Google.

The imagery you see via Street View was gathered by astronauts when one of Space X's Dragon vehicles was parked at the ISS. Because of that, you'll also be able to watch how cargo gets delivered to the station.

For the ultimate Street View experience, a full 360-degree view is needed. Also, make sure to tap on those info dots whenever you see them while digitally exploring the ISS, as they will provide you with details about the surroundings.

Given the fact that Google's Street View hasn't been made for 360-degree experiences, controls might feel awkward at first (and they are), but you'll get used to it after a while.
