did others NASA TV go blank?
Considering that the Internet streams and the feed that KSC rebroadcasts at 1 fpm is also showing the same, it's a good guess it's a transmission issue. Happened when the ISS hour broadcast from JSC ended (I see the Media Channel Internet stream is also frozen). I'm getting the same blackness via cable TV retransmission of the Public Channel.
http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/main/Endeavour Takes Off for FloridaFri, 12 Dec 2008 05:13:28 PM GMTThe final leg of space shuttle Endeavour’s cross-country trek began at noon EST today when space shuttle Endeavour took off from Barksdale Air Force Base, La., on the back of a modified 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. It is scheduled to arrive at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at about 2:40 p.m. today.Depending on the weather on Florida’s Atlantic coast at arrival, pilots of the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft could fly over Cocoa Beach, Fla., during the return. The pilots will make that decision when they near the area.The flight will land at the Shuttle Landing Facility on runway 33, which means it will land from the southern end of the runway.
It appears to be back on.
What are they showing on NASA TV right now? Looks like a big ship.
what's going with the flight path looks to be headed east now - off of path
