RT has released "Spacewalk 360," a 360° video filmed in open space. RT says this is the first time that an EVA has been recorded in 360° format.

The video takes viewers on an immersive spacewalk with Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryazansky and Fyodor Yurchikhin as part of RT's Space 360 project, a collaborative effort among RT, Roscosmos State Corporation and Energia Rocket and Space Corporation.

In the video, the cosmonauts perform maintenance on the International Space Station (ISS) and propel five miniature satellites into orbit around the Earth. The pair captured the video during a 7.5-hour spacewalk in August.

"The first ever panoramic video from open space is a revolution both for VR technology and for the exploration of the universe," said Eduard Chizhikov, head of RT's Space 360 project. "Thanks to the project, any person on Earth can feel what it's like to be in space from the comfort of their own home. Our video offers an opportunity to get closer to the infinite. Welcome to outer space!"

RT is a global television news network with bureaus in Moscow, Washington, D.C., and London. In 2015, RT began producing news content in the 360° format and now claims one of the largest original 360° content libraries with more than 130 videos. RT's 360 content is available on Facebook, YouTube and the RT360 mobile app (available for download at Google Play, App Store and Oculus Store).
