VIDEO: UrtheCast Cameras Launch Aboard A Soyuz Rocket

From a Baikonur bunker, watch as UrtheCast’s two cameras launch into space.

Team members from UrtheCast and RAL Space travelled to the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to watch as UrtheCast’s cameras made their historic launch to the ISS on Nov. 25, 2013. The Progress 53P cargo ship, carrying UrtheCast’s cameras, reached orbit following a successful launch from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur Cosmodrome. Travelling aboard a Soyuz rocket, UrtheCast’s two cameras — the world’s first 1-Metre Class, high-resolution Earth video camera and one medium-resolution imaging camera — are scheduled to arrive at the International Space Station (ISS) on November 29.
