2015 @NASARMC videos and launch of #AFSPC5

Oh man I never posted this blog! Oh well, here is token launch photo and the playlist of videos I shot at the 2015 +NASA Robotic Mining Competition.

There was a break in the competition and everyone ran to the arena entrance to watch the rocket lift from the horizon. This was the second year in a row that a launch occurred during the RMC.

Videos from RMC 2015

These videos were shot inside the competition arena (inside the glass) by myself to share the dusty experience and a unique view of the competitors in action at NASA's 2015 Robotic Mining Challenge.
