The Bloodhound SSC's attempt at a record breaking 1000 mph may be two years away, but already pilot Andy Green has released some tantalizing details about the event, including the fact that the entire run will be streamed live online. 

According to Green, 16 cameras (mounted inside and outside the cockpit) will capture every moment of the attempt and cockpit interactions between Green and his crew will be played live. Additionally, YouTube, Google and Microsoft have all expressed interest in exclusive broadcast deals, Green said.

Green is already the holder of the world land speed record, hitting a whopping 763 mph in his Thrust SSC in 1997. Here's hoping Green comes out of this next attempt in one piece!
