Re: STS-93 Keps....



Hi Joe.

I'm watching NASA Select live (not over the web) and I see good agreement
between NASA TV's shuttle position and my locally calculated position for
STS93.  Within the precision of the view that is presented on TV, they are
the "same."   I've not tried to compare the web versions to what I see live.
