State-of-the-art high-resolution camera equipment that will capture content for presentations at the MSG Sphere at The Venetian is on its way to the International Space Station.

The equipment was aboard a station resupply package that launched Monday morning from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. It is scheduled to rendezvous with the ISS Wednesday.

Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. officials said Monday that it partnered with Nanoracks LLC to send camera equipment to the space station aboard Northrop Grumman’s 18th Commercial Resupply Services mission atop an Antares rocket.

Antares carried an enhanced Cygnus spacecraft, named the S.S. Sally Ride, to orbit on a mission to resupply the Expedition 68 crew aboard the space station.
