Just after 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, May 22, and nearly one minute and 20 seconds into launch, NASA engineers determined, “vehicle is supersonic.” The launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9, a moment five years in the making, had moved NASA and space exploration into a new era.
For Science Channel, a television network committed to covering all things supersonic, it was “the day.” They covered SpaceX from every angle and with “the coolest damn cameras out there,” according to their “Inscider” blog by Brad Kohlenstein. And how did they transport the amazing video captured by “the mother-of-all lenses shooting from three miles away?”
They sent video fast and in high quality with latakoo.
latakoo is proud to have been the choice for Science Channel on an historic day. We congratulate entrepreneur Elon Musk and his team at SpaceX for inspiring another generation of kids to look to the stars and dream.
And to the journalists and visionaries at Science Channel, thanks for sending your precious cargo via koo. We feel good since you are the network with the slogan “question everything.”
Brad Kohlenstein wrote, “it was electric.”
You’re right, Brad. We feel the electricity in this video.
