DISH has a dedicated HD channel, 91, for coverage of the launch of the Echostar.
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

Why is the webcast not working for me?  "Cannot load M3U8:  crossdomain access denied."


I have no idea what that means.  I've watched ESA webcasts before.  The same thing happened yesterday.




The Space Age is just starting to get interesting.

Got the Ariane countdown going on my big screen.  What's the issue holding the count?
I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.
