LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess) – Madison Square Garden Entertainment has announced a partnership with Nanoracks, LLC, a Voyager Space company, with plans to send state-of-the-art camera equipment to the International Space Station for testing before use on the top of MSG – Sphere tech locations.

The camera system, which launched Monday aboard Northrop Grumman’s 18th Commercial Resupply Services mission (NG-18) from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, is the camera system at the most high resolution ever launched to the ISS.

The camera will operate on the ISS for a period of 60 days, exposing it to the harsh environment of orbital habitats and will undergo field validations to develop a baseline for functionality in microgravity conditions.

Other upcoming tests include evaluations of the camera’s performance in space, including power systems, data transfer structures, and spatial hardening of the camera system.

“Our vision with MSG Sphere is to create immersive experiences that transport audiences to new places, and there are few landscapes more awe-inspiring than space. The insights and images we will gain from this first mission will be invaluable to preparing our breakthrough camera technology for work in space and to further our collective understanding of Earth and deep space. We are excited to collaborate with Nanoracks, CASIS and NASA on this project, which we believe will benefit not only to the extraordinary vision of MSG Sphere, but will also set a new bar for ultra-high fidelity imaging,” said Andrew Shulkind, MSG Senior Vice President of Capture and Innovation at Sphere Studios.

“MSG Sphere is one of Nanoracks most interesting customers. Commercial access to the ISS continues to open doors for newcomers to the space industry, leading to incredible technological development and paving the way for long-term commercial use of space, from science to media. and entertainment. Nanoracks is proud to be the partner of choice for filming and media projects on the space station, and to help support the success of MSG Sphere’s camera technology in space,” added Scott Rodriguez, Vice President of Nanoracks Government Programs.

The first MSG Sphere in the United States is currently under construction in Las Vegas and is expected to open in the second half of 2023.
