Live Feeds From Space

Note: Our live feeds are now available online at This is a new, experimental website and we'd love to get your feedback.

At the space centre we have a variety of live video, image and data feeds coming from various organizations around the world and in space. These feeds obviously change over time, and the feeds we can access change. Occasionally a certain mission will end so that's the end of our live feed. We're constantly on the lookout for new and interesting live feeds so please let us know if there's anything you think we could be using in our displays.

Here are the feeds we are currently using:

International Space Station (ISS)

This is one of our most popular live feed displays. It's actually four different feeds: Two live video streams, a map showing the current position of the ISS and a prediction of upcoming visible passes of the ISS over New Zealand.
