Space mission offers new angle on the world

Cameras send a constant stream of high definition pictures of Earth, live via the Internet.

    Two Russian cosmonauts have taken a walk outside the International Space Station to install a special piece of equipment.

    The mission took six hours and eight minutes and could change the way we see the world.

    Canadian online company UrtheCast wants to sell the stream to governments and ministries, followed by businessmen.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports.
