For me personally I can take or leave NASA in HD, for the simple reason that I've never been truly excited or impressed with the activities of NASA's manned space programs since Apollo. When that program concluded and the next much more challenging one to go to Mars was canceled. NASA's manned missions have largely floundered to me, without a real goal to shoot for.

Not blaming NASA mind you. With the winding down of the disastrous Vietnam war fueling an already disgruntled, disillusioned public and a budget ax wielding congress wanting to shift government spending for social programs at the time. NASA had neither the interest, funds or national commitment for such a major undertaking as a manned space mission to Mars.

But nevertheless without such high goals to pursue it doesn't leave manned space flight a real purpose to exist.

Perhaps you missed the news of the last five years . . .


We're going back to the moon and eventually on to Mars . . . (hopefully within my lifetime).

This thread title is misleading. I was very happy for a few seconds. Now I'm just regular happy.

I used to sit and watch the earth orbit footage for hours, just mesmerized by the view. After watching Planet Earth in HD, I just can't watch NASA anymore.:(:(

and I predict at least 5 "waste of bandwidth" posts on the first 2 pages if this makes it that far

It never will happen because it's owned by the government.

HDnet does carry the launch in HD, but I do believe that NASA is getting ready to start carring their mission feeds in HD. Like you, I would really love that

+1, This is a must have channel if they do everything in HD.
If it ain't in HD, it ain't worth watching!
