The continuing live coverage is below…

Courtesy Space Vidcast, You can watch coverage of the 123rd Shuttleflight, the 35th flight of the Discovery vehicle, and the delivery of the experimental JAXA Kibo pressurized module to the ISS. After this flight, there are only eight more flights to the ISS planned by NASA shuttles. This flight is anticipated to last 15 days, minus the time required to repair the toilet. If it’s anything like an earthly toilet repair, I hope they packed a lunch.

The NASA Channel will be played on this channel, and the Live Show is scheduled to begin around 4 pm, give or take.

Rush Limbaugh to Headline Historic Pro-Troop Effort

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008

Rush Limbaugh made headlines in 2005 when he traveled to Afghanistan to meet with U.S. troops serving in the war on terror. As he reported to his huge listening audience, he witnessed first-hand the “awe-inspiring” jobs our troops were doing there.

Now Rush has signed on to help the pro-troop organization, Move America Forward to send the largest single shipment of care packages to U.S. troops in history. The drive will culminate in a June 26th 8-hour web-a-thon called “From the Frontlines” that will feature video reports from our troops serving in Iraq & Afghanistan – and Rush has agreed to participate in the program that will be hosted by Move America Forward Chairman, Melanie Morgan, and blogger extraordinare, Michelle Malkin.

More Information: Move America Forward
Live Stream Channel: From the Frontline

I will be hosting a live-stream of this event on this blog, so stand-by for more information as the time nears.

Seven Minutes Of Terror: Live Coverage Of Phoenix Landing On Mars Update—Phoenix Has Landed!

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 25, 2008

**update** 8.02 pm The Phoenix Has Landed, and so far, all is well. When Ben makes the recording available, I will post it in place of the live stream player so you can relive the event.

Replay of event:

Free Videos by Ustream.TV

Here is my preferred viewing for all things NASA, Space Vid Cast:

Phoenix is scheduled to touch down on the northern icy plains of Mars tonight. Confirmation of the landing could come as early as 7:53 p.m. EDT (4:53 p.m. PDT). Follow along on here during landing, the live coverage is expected to begin at 6pm. Until then, I have a few websites for you to peruse. Remember that Mars is about 15 Light Minutes away, so we won’t know what happens on Mars until 15 minutes later.

Phoenix Website

University of Arizona Website

**update** 5.21pm Phoenix is even on “Twitter“. Gag me with a spoon!

Time table (All Times pm Eastern)

7.16.00 Propulsion System Pressurization
7.39.17 Cruise Stage Separation
7.46.17 Enter Martian Atmosphere
7.49.57 Parachute Deploy
7.50.12 Heat Shield Jettison
7.52.50 Lander Separation
7.52.53 Descent thrusters Increase
7.53.33 Touchdown

Just remember, that we will have to wait for the radio signals to get from Mars to the Earth, and that will take several minutes.

Today’s snapshot of the Solar System as viewed from above:

Mars is red, and the Earth is blue Venus is white, Mercury is green, and the Sun is yellow in this picture. Photo courtesy Solar System Live.

Mars is about 171,400,000 miles from Earth, and since light travels at just over 186,000 miles per second…it will take the messages 921 seconds, or 15 and a third minutes to get here. This is also why most everything taking place on the lander is automated. There is no way we could course correct in time. If there were astronauts on this lander…they would have to wait over 30 minutes for a reply! That should give you an idea of how truly vast space is, and how tiny we are, and how far we have to go in the exploration of the universe.
Other places with live coverage on the internet may be found at NASA TV, Green Banks Telescope, and CNN Live w/ Miles O’Brien.

Here is a quick video update via youtube:


Here is a video of the launch of Phoenix, nine months ago:
