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.

TSIS-1 External Cargo Removed from SpaceX Dragon Trunk

This timelapse video shows the Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor (TSIS-1) experiment being removed from the SpaceX’s Dragon CRS-13 trunk. It flew up as external cargo in the Dragon on a Falcon 9 rocket launch on December 15th 2017. The TSIS-1 was then installed on the International Space Station’s ExPRESS logistics carrier (ELC)-3.

TSIS-1 makes measurements of total and spectral solar irradiance (TSI and SSI, respectively). TSI is required for establishing Earth’s total energy input while SSI is needed to understand how the atmosphere responds to changes in the sun’s output. Solar irradiance is one of the longest and most fundamental of all climate data records derived from space-based observations.
