Virtual Tour: International Space Station (ISS)

With many travel plans scuttled due to the global pandemic, why not take a break from Earth and become a virtual space tourist? Google Arts & Culture is offering a full 360-degree virtual tour of the International Space Station (ISS).

The digital exhibition makes use of the online platform’s Street View technology for a self-guided exploration of the nooks and crannies of the 22-year old space station. Street View controls let viewers move through various narrow tunnels in the ISS, scrutinize rooms full of equipment, and even take a gander at the crew quarters.

To complement the virtual visit, Google has also posted an interactive fact sheet on the ISS. 10 Out-Of-This-World Facts About the International Space Station provides insight into numerous frequently asked questions about life in orbit, including how astronauts eat in space and the effect of zero-gravity on the human body.

Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
