Exciting times !!!
The launch of Demo-2, the first manned U. S. space launch in 9 years with be broadcast on Nat Geo.
Launch date is planned for Wednesday, May 27th (weather permitting).
Coverage starts at 3:00 pm EST, with liftoff of the Falcon 9 rocket at 4:33 pm EST.
I was planning on being there... but this stupid virus screwed up my plans. Oh well.
At least I can watch it on Nat Geo in High Def.
That's cool news, but I won't be able to watch - I work afternoon shift!
Aborted due to weather
Next attempt - Saturday May 30, 3:22 PM EDT
oh no, I forgot about it, and was out moving the grass !
A big oops on the part of Nat Geo for the very coverage I was promoting here. Apparently the program was copyrighted including the public domain content from NASA. This caused YouTube to take down NASA's own video of the launch for violating Nat Geo's copyright. It was down for the entire weekend. Here is an article regarding the incident:
