WATCH: Live video from space is so powerful you can watch individual people on the ground

An amazing camera in orbit is so powerful, it can zoom into individual people on the ground. 

The camera built by Urthecast is mounted on a steerable platform on the International Space Station.

It is capable of shooting at an amazing 1 metre resolution, providing HD video feeds of London, Boston and Barcelona.

Scott Larso, co-founder of UrtheCast said: “We’re revealing a perspective of Earth from space that was previously reserved for a small few.”
