** Expedition 67 – Astronaut Jessica Watkins Talks with AccuWeather, KMGH-TV in Colorado- May 13, 2022 – NASA Video
Aboard the International Space Station, NASA Expedition 67 Flight Engineer Jessica Watkins discussed living and working in space during an in-flight interview May 13 with AccuWeather Network and KMGH-TV in Denver, Colorado. Watkins is in the midst of a six-month long mission living and working aboard the microgravity laboratory to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies for future human and robotic exploration missions as part of NASA’s Moon and Mars exploration approach, including lunar missions through NASA’s Artemis program.
** See the European Robotic Arm unfolded for 1st time during spacewalk – VideoFromSpace

Currently, live views from the ISS are streaming from an external camera mounted on the ISS module called Node 2. Node 2 is located on the forward part of the ISS. The camera is looking forward at an angle so that the International Docking Adapter 2 (IDA2) is visible. If the Node 2 camera is not available due to operational considerations for a longer period of time, a continuous loop of recorded HDEV imagery will be displayed. The loop will have “Previously Recorded” on the image to distinguish it from the live stream from the Node 2 camera. After HDEV stopped sending any data on July 18, 2019, it was declared, on August 22, 2019, to have reached its end of life. Thank You to all who shared in experiencing and using the HDEV views of Earth from the ISS to make HDEV so much more than a Technology Demonstration Payload!
