  • streaming shuttle launch video

    http://video.cgi.cbsnews.com/video/video.pl?url=/broadcast/*/livenews1.wmv&sid=500251&dart=news.video

    Open that URL in WMP. It's interesting to let it sit at the bottom of my screen while I work today. The launch isn't until this afternoon.

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

    My employer probably wouldn't appreciate the lost bandwidth of leaving this running all day, so for those who can't leave it running all day the actual launch is happening at 15:51 EDT (3:51pm eastern).

    I know what you're thinking. Why 15:51? Why not 15:53? Well, I just don't know.

      Because 15:53 would just be silly.

      If you care about your bandwidth like al does, know that you're not missing much. :)

        I stand corrected. They've just scrapped the launch.

              There are four sensors that monitor fuel levels and keep the engines from running without enough fuel to make them go safely (apparently, trying to run an engine dry is a VERY bad thing for a space shuttle). Two are required, two are redundancies. One malfunctioned.

              At least, that's what I understood from this afternoon's report.

                nice
                after all the preperations they made for the "return to Flight" mission, makes me wonder if those shuttles are up to the challenge
