First live broadcast from space with a 3D camera

The European Space Agency (ESA) has developed a camera that has conducted the first live broadcast in three dimensions of the International Space Station (ISS). The first images of the ISS 3D were taken on 6 in August . NASA astronaut Ron Garan, was asked to use the camera Erasmus Binocular (ERB-2) which has become "a new window on the ISS", as pointed out by ESA. The agency has stressed that thanks to this camera viewers will have "a better view of the depth" of the craft and bodies "floating" of the occupants. The ERB-2 has a size "not much larger than a shoe box, "with High Definition optical and advanced electronics. This is the second generation of the family of stereo cameras developed by the ESA. The issue was first seen from the European Space Research Centre and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Holland, where the "spectators" wore glasses polarized, similar to those used in cinemas. As he pointed out the ESA, the public "was impressed with the quality of the images was almost real."
