Insider Exclusive: Video of SpaceX Falcon 9 launch with TurkmenAlem satellite
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla — Prior to Space Exploration Technologies’ (SpaceX ) successful launch of a Falcon 9 v1.1 rocket with its payload of the first Turkmenistan satellite, TurkmenAlem52E/MonacoSAT, the media was escorted out to Cape Canaveral Air force Station’s Space Launch Complex 40. Their reason for the trip – was to place remote cameras to record the historic event. SpaceFlight Insider placed both still and video cameras at the pad – capturing the video below.
To better cover these events, SpaceFlight Insider sets both types of cameras, produces the articles, and is, currently, the only space-based media outlet to stream these events – live!
