Euronews has announced the launch of a YouTube channel fully dedicated to science and knowledge.
Called Euronews Knowledge, this Web TV portal was launched in partnership with Michael Stevens, who edits Vsauce, the most viewed science and technology channel on YouTube.
This first-of-a-kind operation will be produced in partnership with the European Space Agency, in live and VOD formats.
On the second of May 2013, for Euronews Knowledge and Vsauce, Michael Stevens will attend the launch of Europe’s new space craft, Vega, from the Kourou base in French Guyana. Michael Stevens will exclusively take viewers step-by-step through the tense last-minute preparations, while every detail is checked and rechecked, until the final countdown and point of no return before lift-off.
All of the videos filmed in the control room and around the base, will be exclusively available on Euronews Knowledge and Vsauce.
One of the main attractions on Euronews Knowledge will be the Did You Know? series, because everyday life is an experience in itself; and the themed strands “Space” (on Mondays) and “Science” (on Wednesdays). “Euronews Knowledge” will be launched on 19 April, live from Kourou, in English, then in the other languages of Euronews.
