There are countless destinations in this world that you can explore with Google Street View, but what about destinations outside this globe of ours? Google Street View now makes it possible to take a tour of the International Space Station from the comfort of our sofas. This is the first time that Street View is covering a destination in space and it’s a glorious one.

You can now explore all 15 modules of the International Space Station through Google Street View. You can drift through it all and since the ISS is a very complex contraption, Google also provides explanations about the equipment that you’re going to encounter on your tour.

When the imagery for this project was collected, a SpaceX Dragon capsule was docked with the International Space Station. It provides viewers with a unique opportunity to see how cargo gets delivered to astronauts up there.

Since the ISS is free from the constraints of gravity, you will need to experience it in full 360 degree view. This can be a bit difficult given that Street View’s controls aren’t really conducive to viewing 360 degree content.

If you’re interested to see the International Space Station from the inside in all its glory, visit Google Maps right now and check it out.
