Fantastic 360-Degree Little Planet Panoramas of Rocket Launches at Baikonur Cosmodrome


In 2011 and 2012, Russian photographer Andrew Bodrov traveled to Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and created a wonderful series of space-themed 360-degree “little planet” panoramas. While at Baikonur he was able to capture several rocket launches, as well as various monuments scattered around the space launch facility. One of his more striking images, a launch of a Proton-M rocket, was featured in the 157th International Print Exhibition of The Royal Photographic Society. Bodrov’s Baikonur panoramas are also available in interactive versions. He has more little planets on his site.
