If you have a few hours to kill and need something fun to do, give Google Street View a try. Even before virtual touring became a common solution to what to do over the weekend, spring break and now summer, this Google feature was a cool way to check out almost any part of the world from your computer. Accessible through Google Maps, you just dropped a pin and look around via photographs.
But you don’t have to limit yourself to the terra firma.

The ISS is in orbit 250 miles from Earth and this 360 degree tour shows you how remarkable the lab, and the view, is in space.
Thomas Pesquet worked with Google and other astronaughts in puting together what is now called Outer Space View.
There are also notes about the various features and instruments onboard.
Take a few minutes and explore. Who doesn’t need some space these days?
