Watch Now: First Live 4K Video from Space, Streamed by AWS

Amazon’s cloud enables “highest-resolution video ever broadcast from space”

NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson is now broadcasting live from the International Space Station, 250 miles off the Earth in what the space agency says is the “highest-resolution video ever broadcast live from space.”

The live stream is enabled partly by Amazon Web Services’ Elemental, using AWS CloudWatch, Amazon Route 53, and Amazon CloudFront. These services are providing public access to the stream in both 4K and HD, according to Amazon.

The stream is taking place in conjunction with the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters conference in Las Vegas.

The broadcast started at 10:30 am Pacific and will end at 11:30 am. Take a look here:
