CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Want the world's best, up-close view of a rocket launch without being right there at the pad?
For the first time, cameras provided live 360-degree video of a rocket heading toward space.
NASA provided the 360 stream Tuesday as an unmanned Atlas rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, with a capsule full of space station supplies.
The four fisheye-lens cameras were located at the pad, about 300 feet (100 meters) from the rocket. A computer in a blast-proof box stitched together the images for a full, in-the-round view.
