You can now take a good look around the International Space Station thanks to google street view.

Google worked with astronauts so space fans can take a look around the ISS, from the stunning views of earth through the Cupola window to the space labs.

Thomas Pesquet, a European Space Agency astronaut who helped collect the images earlier this year, said in a blog post that the experience of capturing the tour “describes the feeling of being in space” better than words or a picture can.

Images were collected through DSLR cameras that are already on board the station and through gravity free methods, you can see how this was done in the video below.

The pictures that were captured on board were sent back to earth and stitched together to create s bunch of 360 images.
