Guide: How to install NASA Kodi science channel

Most of us can't go to space. To be an astronaut, years of training are required and besides, we wouldn't be able to watch our favorite shows from space. However, it is also true that most of us still get amazed whenever a new planet is discovered, or a meteor shower is about to show up on our lawn. To stay tuned with the latest space findings, I would recommend to any HTPC enthusiast to install NASA Kodi addon, which is a Kodi science channel that will bring the most relevant images from outside our atmosphere, directly from NASA to your TV screen.
