It'll be the first live 360-degree broadcast of a rocket launch, with the mission carrying cargo to resupply the International Space Station (ISS).

The 360-degree livestream will be accessible on the NASA Television YouTube channel starting 10 minutes prior to liftoff.

Nasa has teamed up with Orbital ATK, United Launch Alliance (ULA), Lockheed Martin and Boeing's Space technology company for the resupply mission.

Orbital ATK's Cygnus ship is scheduled to launch from a US air force facility in Cape Canaveral, Fla., during a half-hour window starting at 11:11 a.m. ET. The Antares was grounded for two years after that while the vehicle's engines were replaced; the Atlas V served as a stopgap in the meantime so that Orbital could continue to resupply the station as part of its contractual obligations to NASA.

Two new Expedition 51 crew members will be seated in the Soyuz MS-04 spacecraft when it lifts off from Kazakhstan Thursday at 3:13 a.m. Launch managers from ULA, Orbital ATK and NASA determined all is ready for Tuesday's targeted launch to the ISS.

The Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft named for Sen. The Advanced Plant Habitat, which is about the size of a mini refrigerator, includes more than 180 sensors to measure temperature, oxygen content and moisture levels. This study is the third in a series to "ignite a large-scale fire in microgravity". "This is the first time that this has ever been attempted and. we will review today's 360-degree setup and endeavor to bring this new perspective of a rocket launch to everyone in the future". Forecasters are predicting a 90 percent chance of acceptable weather Tuesday and Wednesday.
