On Tuesday morning, NASA will broadcast its first-ever rocket launch live stream in the 360-degree video, providing a unique vantage point that will make viewers feel as if they are standing on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral.
The launch of the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket—aimed at transporting supplies to the International Space Station—is scheduled for a 30-minute window beginning at 11:11 a.m. ET.
The 360-degree livestream will be accessible on the NASA Television YouTube channel starting 10 minutes prior to liftoff.
Livestream promises viewers a much closer look at a powerful rocket launch, or what NASA is calling a “pads-eye view.”
The rocket will be carrying a Cygnus spacecraft made by Orbital ATK, with more than 7,600 pounds of scientific research, crew supplies, and other materials destined for the orbiting laboratory.
