I don't know.
Wouldn't you like to know?
How hard would it be to turn the camera around?



Well simply as it's a movie camera and unless you set up a manual exposure for a few seconds all you will see is the blackness of space, of course if the shutter is open for a few seconds you have the problem of movement.

But that still does not answer "How hard would it be to turn the camera around? " so we could see.

But that is for another thread.

I never realized a video could be so epic and yet so boring at the same time...very interesting.

I think we should be a little bit grateful that the video even exists in the public domain. Bare in mind mate, that they had a mission to do. In space. So I doubt they have time to have a glance about, I'm guessing time is pretty crucial up there.

That was a major reason why public support for the Apollo missions dried-up so quickly. Yes, we were getting LIVE COLOR TELEVISION FROM THE MOON...

...of two guys doing field geology for 6 hours at a time. People complained when golf tournements were getting pre-empted by Apollo coverage.

Well let's see them take the Sony A7S out there next time, as it can view the stars in real time. Then turn around and lets take a look at what can be seen. The Moon should show up with the GoPro though, and Venus I'd think.
And I doubt the GoPro would need a special casing for space, the conditions out there aren't as harsh as we are lead to believe. Just leave one out there for a few days and see if it suffers or dies, they are cheap enough , by NASA standards, to use in a destruction test.

Interesting that they had the GoPro looking directly at the Sun for quite a while in the EVA video, but from what I see on the 'Net, more than a few seconds exposure with the Sun high in the sky and the sensor will be damaged. I'd think the supposed extra intensity of the Sun up there would have really permanently burned some pixels.

Only with the very high ISO setting. It would completely everexpose the sunlit (or even earth-lit) objects, and the camera will immediately try to compensate.

In the vacuum of space, lubrication in-between the moving parts evaporates. Cameras need to be protected from that, as well as from being heated by direct sunlight.

We already have the HD video test on the ISS, I'm sure you have watched the live stream.

GaryN want's the camera facing away from the Earth/Sun so it could be done you would use manual exposure, remember that camera has filmed real time Milky Way video.
