A Continuous 24 Hour Stream of Earth from the ISS If You Ever Want to Relax or Escape

Continuous-24-Hour-Stream-of-Earth-from-the-ISS-youtube-live-video

 

Did you know there’s a live, 24 hour HD stream from NASA from the International Space Station? It’s wonderful to look at every now and then, however the feed sometimes switches channels or goes dark for periods of time.

The YouTube stream above dutifully edits out the breaks and pauses so you’re always looking at a beautiful view of Earth. It’s even set to soothing music by Kevin McLeod.

Baron Bags

Making premium bags and accessories from high quality leather and canvas is our passion. We are committed to consistent style and pay little interest in short-term trends. We make products that will last for generations.

Baron was founded in 1978 with the ambition to create well designed bags, made to be used over and over again. It started out with leather briefcases and weekend bags, but soon came to include the canvas collection, with bags and cases specially made for travelling and hunting.

Today, all Baron products combine classic elegance with the contemporary needs of the modern businessman and traveller. We are dedicated to quality and sustainability, both in terms of materials and workmanship. Our product development is focused on continuous improvement of existing models and limited introductions of new models.

Baron is owned and managed by the Adelswärd family. The family carries the title “baron” since 1783 and also holds the estate Baroniet Adelswärd, the only Barony in Sweden.

Set predominantly in Central Park during Vietnam War-era New York, the story follows the induction of rural American rancher Claude Bukowski into a tribe of free-loving hippies, shortly before he joins the American army to be flown to Vietnam. More importantly, however,…
