This is part 2 of 2 of a video that describes the remote sensing capabilities of the International Space Station (ISS) utilizing the United States Laboratory "Destiny" module science window and the Window Observational Research Facility (WORF). The Lab Window is the highest optical quality window ever installed on a manned space vehicle and permits the use of high resolution cameras and multi and hyper-spectral Earth science remote sensing instruments from within the pressurized volume of the ISS which eliminates the expense and complexity of having to operate an instrument outside of the ISS in the vacuum of space at extreme temperatures. The WORF provides the stable platform on which to mount cameras and sensors at the Lab Window as well as the connectivity to operate these payloads. The video is hosted by Astronaut and Lab Window/WORF developer Mario Runco who flew three Space Shuttle missions, STS-44, 54, & 77.
