Rocketcam footage of PSLV C37’s 104 spacecraft deployment!

This edited rocketcam footage from the C37 PSLV mission is pretty awesome, because it shows all 104 spacecraft making it safely away into their designated orbits.  It gives me amazing joy to see all these little spacecraft just being spat out into orbit; it’s amazing this can be done, and flawlessly at that!

Soyuz ROCKETCAM!!!!!

Russia almost never does rocketcams; I never saw a Soyuz rocketcam until Arianespace started operating them out of Kourou.  But not any more!  Roscomos has released this lovely video of the inaugural Soyuz 2 launch from the new Vostochny Cosmodrome.  Feast your eyes:

One more post for tonight…..Falcon 9 drone landing via rocketcam!

Rocketcam videos are always fun, but this one’s extra special.  😉  It’s from the first stage used yesterday.  Watch the landing legs deploy and the rocket set itself down on the barge!  Also cool: watch the grid fins turn to help control the descent.

New Falcon 9.1.1 First Stage Splashdown Video!

SpaceX has released rocketcam video of the Falcon 9.1.1 splashdown from the recent ORBCOMM flight!  It’s much better than the last attempt, although the camera lens unfortunately iced over.  You can still see the landing legs deploy, though.

Soyuz rocketcam footage!

This may be the first rocketcam imagery from a Soyuz launch; it’s certainly the first I’ve seen.  This is from last week’s Sentinel 1A launch from Kourou, and it definitely gives a new perspective on the venerable R-7 rocket family.  Strap-on booster jettison is particularly exciting from this angle.
