The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the team and Mission Control. This video is just offered when the area station is in contact with the ground. Throughout loss of signal periods, audiences will see a blue screen.” Since the station orbits the Earth as soon as every 90 minutes, it experiences a daybreak or a sundown about every 45 minutes. When the station remains in darkness, external electronic camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below.” Follow us on Twitter @Spacedotcom and on Facebook..
