New Website Coming - 4th June 2018

It will be 7 years on March 13th since we launched SpaceVids back in 2011 and 5 years since the launch of the website - Since then the website has outgrown the Space sector and is in dire need of an upgrade. To mark the 5th anniversary we will be launching a brand new stunning website on April 2nd June 4th 2018, The new website will have all of the same videos along with historical data in a fully responsive view.

We have pushed launch back into June by a month to allow us to ensure the historical videos are all imported properly.

A Russian Proton-M rocket launched today, July 9th 2012 at 18:38 UTC from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The rocket carried the SES-5 communications satellite into orbit. SES-5 will provide Ku, Ka and C band communications to Europe and Africa. This was the 378th Proton launch, the 74th ILS Proton launch and the 5th Proton launch of 2012. This was also the first launch SpaceVids encoded from the satellite broadcast, improving quality. When Baikonur upgrade to HD later this year we will bring you launches in HD.
