If the world breaks open or shudders to a halt today, the folks on the International Space Station will be the first to know about it.
Or, you know, the second. The first to know about it will be the folks who are suddenly swallowed whole by a raging Earth or thrown from the planet's surface into the frigid, uncaring void of space, but they're probably not going to be much for reporting back on what's happening, what with all the screaming and crying and begging for mercy. Sissies. Anyway, if you find yourself needing reassurance that the world is not in fact ending, look no further than the ISS's eye in the sky live stream, embedded below for your convenience. The feed will give you an astronaut's eye view of all life on Earth... moving on uninterrupted in pretty much the way it does every day.
Hey, don't look at us -- we said it was reassuring, not exciting.
