We pride ourselves about being a global streaming provider, but this event for Times Educational Supplement involved linking Tim Peake in the International Space Station, with over 200,000 school children (and a few excited adults too…)

We streamed a live mix of the satellite downlink from the Space Station, (via Houston as it happens) with Kevin Fong’s excellent steering on a stage in The National Museums, Liverpool, and then streamed that to a vast array of schools – most of which had set up a large projection of the live stream or via whiteboards. The highly interactive stream involved questions posed live to Tim, who duly captivated the audience with some superb zero gravity tricks and fascinating insight to live on board the ISS.
