    Re: ISS Desktop Gadgets for Windows

    I know that many people are eager to know about what is going on the space. Majority of people didnít get the up to date news regarding this. Some users might have been a big fan of ISS (International space station). They might be interested in knowing what is going on there. But for this you might need to visit the NASA official page or some other related pages. There you get difficult to find the proper information regarding this. So Now the Microsoft has come with a better idea by providing an ISS desktop gadget for Windows vista and Windows 7. When you download this you will see it on your desktop.

    I know that there are different kinds of ISS gadgets available for download. However I donít think that they are giving the updated news or reports regarding the ISS or space. You will only get the recorded news and stream or video through this gadget or something similar. The Streming application or gadget which you are talking about opens the NASAís Streaming page and plays it by the use of Windows Media player. However that is not the live stream. It is just a recorder video which you can even get in Youtube or somewhere else.

    It's not probable for them to provide a live feed the entire instance except they can forever communicate images toward the ground on a quite usual source regardless of what their orbital location. So you can get the live images every moment but as for the video or streaming is concern it is too hard and not suitable for this kind of streaming. However if can Google then you can get the different options as a live steam.

For further information I think that you need to download and use it by yourself.
