Want the coolest screensaver imaginable? Try this –

  1. Download and install HTML Screensaver from this link. You want the “Windows Installer (msi) file” at the bottom. Open it and install it
  2. Right click somewhere on your desktop and click “personalize”. HTML Screen Saver should be set as your screen saver
  3. Click “Settings”
  4. Under URL type http://www.ustream.tv/channel/iss-hdev-payload/pop-out
  5. Click OK
  6. Press Test

If the screen is black or grey except for a bar at the bottom, just have some patience and wait. Trust me, it’s worth it! More information available here from NASA.

Thanks to Johannes Riska for the tip about HTML Screensaver.

ETA: A few people have been wondering if this can be set as a live Desktop Wallpaper. WallpaperWebPage should be able to do it, using the URL above, however it won’t work on Windows 8, which no longer supports active desktop. As I’m using Windows 8 I’ve been unable to test this.
