Want to control spy satellites on the International Space Station from your Iphone?

Sure you do!

Internet users may soon have a chance to use real spy satellite technologies.
A Canadian company plans to equip the International Space Station with two high-resolution cameras, which will transmit HD video of the Earth’s surface to ground stations and then on to a special online service called Earthcast.
The site is expected to combine features of YouTube and Google Earth. One pixel will equate to one square meter of the Earth’s surface.
So, if you wear bright clothes and lay down flat on the ground, you will be able to see yourself occupying nearly two pixels.
The web platform will also allow you to track the position of the ISS and find out when it passes over your head.
