Science Channel is also showing it as well as ongoing coverage during the mission, all, I believe, in HD.

Saw your post and considered that, then decided to fire up the Slingplayer and do it that way instead (and keep half an eye on NASA TV coverage of pre-launch preps while I work). :)

Yeah it's not MPEG4 HD, but the bandwidth available on those two Mark I Eyeball transponders is AMAZING. :D

Enjoy the show! :up:

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

And for those without MPEG4 capable receivers, HDNet can be found on ch 79 as well.

Blastoff on time and looking good. :)

I saw this today on Yahoo. Wow!

Off Yahoo....

"This computer generated image, supplied by NASA, shows objects that are currently being tracked in Earth orbit. Approximately 95% of the objects in this illustration are orbital debris, i.e., not functional satellites. The dots represent each item. The orbital debris dots are scaled according to the image size of the graphic to optimize their visibility and are not scaled to Earth. This image provide a good visualization of where the greatest orbital debris populations exist. The space shuttle Atlantis is flying at about 350 miles above Earth, an area littered with more dangerous space junk than the lower orbits where shuttles normally park at the international space station."
