South Coast Photos From Space

Students from the South Coast are joining up with the International Space Station to take photographs from space of where they live.

Pupils at Harewood and Avonbourne colleges have been using special technology which allows them to see the view from space online and take images of the coastline.

Harewood's Bill Coombes, a technician in the science department, said: 'This project enables students totake photographic images directly from the International Space Station.

'We do this by sending an email to the ISS via NASA and then, using a camera 360km above the earth, we take photos of the area the space station is passing over.

'It's an awe insipring experience for all the students as they take images of the area they live in from thousands and thousands of miles away in space.'
