    I've been watching it through here: http://www.ustream.tv/spacevidcast

    It was a little annoying trying to get the vital statistics from one of the guys in the computer room at Nasa while he was being talked over by Bill Nye the Science Guy and his Rockstar persona. Silly man in his red tie.
    It should have been Neil D'Grasse Tyson up there.

    Also, I spent the majority of the Nasa centered footage staring at these three. I think my memories will be closely tied with these guys, hope someone can put a name to them.
