Objectives and Applications The objective for UrtheCast was to place webcams onto the ISS and stream the images over the Internet. That was the plan before UrtheCast’s Russian partner, RSC Energia, offered to install the cameras on a moveable platform, attached to the space station’s Zvezda service module. UrtheCast executives then decided to replace one of the still cameras with a video camera.
