Not that anyone needs a reason to broadcast — or watch — a livestream of space in glorious high resolution but there is a reason for this. The livestream is part of a larger event, namely the National Association of Broadcasters’ 2017 Show.
The event has a series of “Super Sessions,” this livestream being part of one of them. The session is titled “Reaching for the Stars: Connecting to the Future with NASA and Hollywood” and will feature:
A panel discussion between astronauts, filmmakers, and technology leaders takes you behind the scenes of the advanced video and cloud workflows that power deep space research, create the foundation for space commerce, and ignite our imagination about the future.
The broadcast will air via Amazon Web Services on April 26 at 10:30 am Pacific time.
