UF alum prepares for first NASA 4K stream with Artemis


It’s been nearly 50 years since any person last touched the surface of the moon.

As NASA prepares to give its Artemis program another attempt at making a historic launch, the broadcast of the launch will make history in its own way. Viewers will be able to see the most powerful rocket ever built in 4K for the first time.

The upgrade to 4K broadcasting was spearheaded by a UF alum who used to direct First at Five for WUFT News. Now, she’s a director at NASA TV.

To watch the historic Artemis I launch in dazzling 4K, fire up NASA TV on YouTube. You can learn more about what 4K means and how best to enjoy it here.

If you would rather watch the mission with your local public media instead, stay tuned to WUFT.org, follow along WUFT News’ Twitter and Instagram, or get live updates from Jacob Sedesse and Denise Vickers in the field.
