NASA has announced it is launching a 4K television channel, which will exclusively show ultra high definition footage.
The new web TV channel, is being touted as “the first ever non-commercial consumer ultra-high definition channel in North America.”
It will show footage and timelapses captured from the International Space Station at 2160p and 60 frames per second. The agency is also remastering footage from its historical missions to be enjoyed at the next-gen resolution.
That’ll even open the possibility for Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 moonwalk to be viewed in 4K for the first time.
The channel will be shown on the web initially, with NASA partner Harmonic saying it may come to cable and satellite networks in due course.
The channel is expected to launch on November 1. We can’t think of a better way to view everything beyond our world…
