Check Out the World’s First 360-Degree Spacewalk Video

Two Russian cosmonauts have filmed the world’s first 360-degree spacewalk video and it looks as incredible as it sounds. The YouTube video – part of Russia Today’s panoramic collection – shows the pair launching nanosatellites from the International Space Station. Meanwhile, the cosmonauts and the ISS orbit the magnificent azure ball we all live on; the video shows every angle of the enviable feat.

360-Degree Spacewalk

Cosmonauts Sergey Ryazansky and Fedor Yurchikhin produced the stunning panorama in August during a 7.5-hour spacewalk. Of course, Flat Earthers will see this for what it is: another piece of fake propaganda. However, even they must acknowledge how beautiful this “fake news” looks:

The Story Behind the Spacewalk

The spacewalk involved the launch of three nanosatellites. In fact, a team of Russian student created two of these satellites. All three of them are even publicly broadcasting. Russia Today reports:

“Ryazansky and Yurchikhin can be seen hurling a pair of Tanyusha nanosatellites, as well as a round Sputnik-like TS530-Zerkalo that will be taking measurements in low Earth orbit, just out of the way of the space station.

All the while you can follow the flight of the ISS, with beautiful blue oceans and impressive land masses opening up all around.

The Tanyusha satellites were created by students from the Russian city of Kursk, with the help of scientists and the leading spacecraft producer Energia. The Tomsk-TPU 120 satellite from the Siberian city of Tomsk was also launched that day. Amateur radio fans can now tune in to listen to Tomsk and Tanyusha satellites broadcasting multilingual messages at the frequencies of 437.025 MHz and 437.05 MHz.”
