Re: Nasa tracking software

I beleive it is still available under one of the channels. Go to "real time
data" and it should also display the different available channels.
Unfortunately, the  DEMOS is only updated every minute or so.
When I'm at home I watch Nasa-tv live via the Dish network though when I'm
at work I hook up to the net and watch it via Real Video.

PS Happy New Year
