Watching the landing on the internet?
« on: 08/03/2012 06:27 AM »
I live overseas (China) and I'd like to watch the landing with some friends.  However, I doubt CCTV will cover the event, and at any rate, I don't have a TV box because I never watch Chinese TV.  How can I watch the event on the internet?

Also, take a look at this thread at UMSF.

Not the live EDL, but Curiosity related events nonetheless.

Planetfest going on live - https://new.livestream.com/planetarysociety/planetfest
(Current speaker: Anne Druyan!)

And later on: https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c7c2fbd2gil25fjimln1jnr1134/110701307803962595019

BA, Miles, Pamela Gay and a few others from The Planetary Society (maybe Bill!)

Also, does anyone know if Neil deGrasse Tyson is live someplace for EDL?

On big events like this NASA TV in the past has run out of video connections.  Don't know if that will be an issue this evening, but it may.

Connect now and just leave it on to be sure you have a slot.

Welcome! Yep, NASA TV is now showing Seven Minutes of Terror. I'm in China too. Enjoy!

 I'm seeing conflicting times. Is 1:31EDT actual landing or the time the results of the landing get to Earth?

In which inertial reference frame? ;)

XBOX Live has a feed that is way nicer than the normal NASA HD UStream...

Try this:

Its called Eyes on the Solar System.

Its simulation live. So live data with a nice graphic for people like me.

Great, thanks.

There really aren't enough relativity-based jokes.

Not the one where FTL neutrinos are involved.

There certainly aren't, now, are there?
Sometimes I just flat out don't get it.
