Just Because It's Cool - Webcam on Mt. Everest
The special camera was designed to handle extreme temperatures (down to -30 C), and sits near the top of Kala Patthar (5675 meters tall). It's powered by solar cells, and uses a wireless link to reach the Ev-K2-CNR Pyramid Laboratory/Observatory below (at 5050 meters high). The camera takes high resolution photos every 5 minutes during local daylight hours.
