An Atlas V rocket launches with the Juno spacecraft payload from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Friday, August 5, 2011. The Juno spacecraft will make a five-year, 400-million-mile voyage to Jupiter, orbit the planet, investigate its origin and evolution with eight instruments to probe its internal structure and gravity field, measure water and ammonia in its atmosphere, map its powerful magnetic field and observe its intense auroras.

nasa

For the first time, the organization will broadcast 360 live live rocket video from its YouTube channel NASATelevision today at 18 April and 18 time: 00 in the afternoon.

Η NASA, the Orbital ATK and the United Launch Alliance (responsible for the construction of the Atlas V missile to transport Cygnus to the space station) place four ultra-wide-angle (fisheye) cameras on the platform, about 100 meters from the rocket. Nearby, a computer protected within a box, from the explosion, will send images in near real-time. As with any 360 video, you can see it on your computer and play with your mouse pointer to see a panoramic view. Of course, if you see it with VR Headset you will feel like you really are in the launch zone.

Transmission around 11: 01 am EDT, that is, around 18: 01 Greece time, 10 minutes before the launch of Atlas V starts. The video will be about one minute behind, after the computer has to process the photos.
