Re: NASA insignia logo on SWATCH Beatnik Tracking Site


Thanks for your comment.

However, from what I see when looking at that frame's source html,  the NASA
insignia logo "meatball.gif" is called from a file on the SWATCH server, and
the j-track window is called from NASA after passing  parameters to the
nasa.gov site to return "beatnik" on the display window...

ie... per useage rights posted at nasa.gov, the link to J-track looks legit,
with correct credits, etc., but the use of the NASA insignia logo at the top
of the page that displays the j-track looks wrong to me per info about the
insignia's use on NASA's website...
