Re: Television coverage of Phase 3D launch.



What someone with the right connections SHOULD try to set up is to get NASA-TV to carry the feed of the Ariane launch.  With all the ATV repeaters and dish owners already on NASA that would make life a lot easier for everyone.
Who can think up some good reasons for NASA as to why they should carry the launch feed on NASA-TV?
