Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

NASA TV coverage starting now.

Koichi said "Gordon Fullerton" looked beautiful when it was around 900m out.

It should look even better close up (remembering ORB-D).

Josh covering, with Cady color commentary. Really good idea to do it this way.

It was used during ORB-D, obviously, but I don't remember them giving us the screen (other than seeing it on the big screen on the wide MCC-H ISS FCR view).
