A UK-based company launched three 4K cameras into space to take high-resolution videos of the Earth.

The cameras will be mounted on the International Space Station (ISS) to capture breathtaking views of our planet.

The best part? You can watch the video stream live for free at any time you want.

SEN, a start-up hailing from London, partnered with SpaceX to launch its cameras towards the ISS.

SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft carried the cargo up there, ready for installation.

The Dragon craft is already quite a celebrity as it has carried out several important joint operations.

Musk’s aerospace company has partnered with NASA to launch its manned operations, such as the Crew-7, into space.

SEN’s live video streaming isn’t new by any means — it already has a camera that streams views of the Earth from a small satellite.

However, the company wants to expand its locations and set up more cameras in different locations to capture the planet.

Now, that’s some dedication.

Observing space with high-quality cameras seems to be quite a trend nowadays.

We only recently saw the completion of the world’s largest camera that will take photos of the sky.

Once SEN’s cameras reach the ISS, they will be prepped by the station crew to mount them.

Then, the cameras will be connected to the Airbus Bartolomeo platform using a robot — the CanadaArm2.

But that’s scheduled for May.

So, it might be a while until we see actual footage from these 4K cameras mounted on the ISS.

One of the cameras will directly look at Earth’s horizon, capturing sunrises and sunsets.

Another one will look straight down to see what’s happening on the planet’s surface.

These views will surely make for a great livestream.

SEN wants everyone to watch the videos its cameras capture live for free.

More likely, it wants everyone to see what the astronauts see from far away.

To be fair, it’s some view from up there.
