Cute Japanese drone sends back photos from space

Int-Ball, a Japanese drone with cameras inside of it, is currently stationed in Kibo, the Japanese Experiment Module on the International Space Station. The drone was designed to take photos and video of astronauts while they are in space. The drone can send images back to JAXA Tsukuba Space Center on Earth in real-time and is controlled by researchers on the ground. Int-Ball will relieve astronauts from the task of sending photos back to earth, making their missions more productive.
