Does anyone know which stations, besides the Nasa Channel, are going to do live coverage of Curiosity's landing on Mars tonight? I was hoping to find an HD station what was covering it.

So where is NASA TV now-a-days? I went to 289 and got Disney Jr. instead of NASA.

EDIT: Never mind. I just found it at 346.

I just looked and neither Nasa nor the Weather Channel give any indication of live coverage in the guide. Hope that's a mistake.

Not on TV, but TWIT will have a special, talking to someone at JPL, along with other guests such as Phil Plait.


Starts at 10PM pacific.

Nasa TV HD is just showing slides and people talking about BS. So far, the only place I have seen anything is a news clip on CNN, and streaming on the net.

No wonder no one is interested in this stuff anymore.

For those interested, they moved NASA TV HD again. Now its on AMC18 105W 3760MHz 28068Ks Vertical SID:101 V:274 A:277

Other way around. Nobody's interested so there's no coverage.


Just another way to waste tax money. People have REAL things to worry about.

There are bigger wastes than the space program. It's not like the money can be moved to social programs and make a difference. Humans are explorers, we can't stop exploring in multiple fields and stop expanding our knowledge. We did that in the dark ages. Didn't really help.

We probably shouldn't go there. My only real point is the entire NASA budget is a drop in the bucket compared to other areas. There's a good NYT graphic that illustrates it pretty well.

Yeah, I wish NASA would have given the networks more advance notice of this thing happening. :rolleyes:

Watching the HD feed with the sides cut off is pretty bad ... especially when the graphics are not framed for 4x3. :(
