Love the Internet

Today I found a live-stream (ok, "found" might not be the right word, since it was right on NASA's homepage) of the shuttle launch, and most of the team was able to sneak to the conference room for about 20 minutes to watch it. One of my favorite books when I was little (about 7, I think) was about Sally Ride with full-page images of space, so today's launch was very exciting. NASA was streaming it in HD, and the stream didn't end when the shuttle launched-- the shuttle had additional hd camera's mounted on the fuel tanks, so the world got to see some awesome, never-before-seen, views.

As Kelly said, "between Casey Anthony and the shuttle launch, it has been a good week for streaming technology." Yes, the Comm team paused all work to watch the verdict announced live as well. We like to follow world events.
