NASA providing 1st live 360-degree view of rocket launch

NASA is giving you a unique way to watch Tuesday's Atlas 5 rocket launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

In a first, NASA brings to viewers on its YouTube channel for the launch of Atlas V rocket with 360-degree video streaming.

NASA will be broadcasting the world's first 360-degree livestream of a rocket launch for Tuesday's event.

Orbital ATK SS John Glenn CRS-7 launch vehicle with the Cygnus cargo spacecraft bolted to the top of the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket is poised for launch at Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on April 18, 2017.

ULA will launch its next Atlas V rocket August 3, 2017, from the same pad.

The four fisheye-lens cameras are located at the periphery of the pad, about 300 feet from the rocket. A processor located in a blast-proof container nearby will turn the images into a seamless 360-degree view with about one minute of lag time.

After payload separation, Centaur ignited a second time at 48 minutes, 30 seconds into its flight to ensure it splashed down in the ocean 1 hour, 7 minutes after liftoff.

Such missions usually carry three crew members, but Russian Federation has opted to reduce its ISS crew complement from three to two to reduce supply requirements and thus cut supply missions. He further said that among the cargo, there are supplies of crew and hardware for the space station. If all goes according to plan, McNulty says, she believes 360 live streams will become a standard for future launches.

"It's a great tribute to John to be able to take his name to orbit once again", said Frank Culbertson, a former astronaut who now heads Orbital ATK's space systems group.

A banner bearing the photo of the late John Glenn is seen aboard the S.S. John Glenn Orbital Cygnus spacecraft.

Atlas V lifted off on time to clear sky at 11:11 a.m. with no delays on launch day.

United Launch Alliance has previously released 360-degree video of two launches, but never live.
