Launch360

is creating informative and inspirational spaceflight content.

In 2018, an insanely bored college student and his friends decided to try something no one had ever really done before ⁠— regularly capture rocket launches in 360° VR. They pooled funds and bought their first 360 camera. As time passed and their following grew rapidly by the thousands, they upgraded their equipment and kept experimenting new techniques from different locations, eventually being able to capture launches in 8K 360° VR with 3D ambisonic audio. But their focus began to shift.

They realized that the majority of their community followed them to learn more about space exploration and get constant updates on upcoming spaceflight events rather than to view their VR launch experiences. VR, it seems, is still a few years from being able to effectively reach everyone. With that in mind, they created a dedicated website and decided to start weaning off of VR content to focus more on informing and inspiring the public on space exploration. The Launch360 website and Facebook event pages consistently reach hundreds of thousands of people in the days leading up to launch. 

Launch360 has come a long way since our dorm room beginnings and we plan on taking it even further. We've begun work on multiple projects that will greatly benefit the Launch360 community, one of which being a mobile app that will put all the information you need for launch viewing at the palm of your hand! More details on this endeavor will be released over the coming weeks.

Along with our future mobile app, we've begun focusing more heavily on our website than ever before, adding features and information that we feel will make learning about and experiencing spaceflight easier than ever before. As many of you may know, we've been focusing entirely on launches out of Florida's Space Coast. This was a great starting point for us since the Launch360 crew is based out of Tampa, FL. Being frequent launchgoers since we were young, we know a thing or two about viewing launches in the area. But now, with the help of our community abroad, we're planning to expand our coverage to all of the US and, eventually, the world. You can expect to see these changes go into place in the coming months as we gather the information we need and revamp our website for the increased coverage.

Launch360 was created with one goal in mind: to spread the excitement of space exploration to everyone, everywhere in the world while informing and educating the public on spaceflight events — profit doesn’t factor into the equation at any point. Your support helps fund everything we do, from website upkeep and equipment upgrades to new project expenses. But, most importantly, your support is enabling us to inspire the next generation of space explorers to keep looking up.
