KHQ.com - If you saw the movie Gravity, you were probably amazed at the visual effects. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney floating out of control in space with the impressive visual of Earth rotating below. What more could you ask for? How about the real thing? (Sans Sandra and George, unfortunately)

NASA is running an experiment known as the "High Definition Earth Viewing" experiment where they have attached four cameras to the outside of the International Space Station, and they are streaming those cameras LIVE!

The cameras point down at Earth all of the time, and the result is quite amazing! Check it out in the stream embedded in this story. The temperature is controlled, however part of the experiment is seeing how the cameras exposure to the radiation of the sun will affect the instruments. 

NOTE: The feed will go down sometimes as the signal switches between cameras, and if at any point they are down, you will see a grey screen. If that happens, check back! Also when the camera is on the dark side of Earth, sometimes it's hard to see much.
