Summer 2009 Super Launches??
It's great to hear that GPSL will be in Lawrence next summer. The central location makes it easier for those of us that attend and don't live in the Great Plains.
If we attempt a Field Day Super Launch, that would be on June 27-28.
I've had some discussions with others about the possibility of also having a Great Lakes Super Launch (GLSL) from some location in a state that borders one of the Great Lakes (e.g., Upland, Indiana).
Of course, I'd love to participate in all three events which requires date coordination.
Paul, do you have any idea about a date for GPSL?
Jeff and David, would Taylor be willing to host the GLSL? Would there be a good date to match some of your workshop efforts?
- Yes - thats exactly what i meant - note to self - check before sending...

I think you ment to say a network link is NOT difficult to set up and I agree with you there. I just found that GooPs has some interesting concepts. I think it is an easy way to play with some of the options that are available in google earth.

Regarding Google Earth - a network link is difficult to setup, not sure you'd need the additional software to do it. Spacenear.us/tracker currently produces a kml file which can be opened in google earth and will update in real time. Does add another dimension to following flights (excuse the pun).

Not sure if you are interested but I have been playing with this tool called GooPs (http://goopstechnologies.com/). In it's simplest form it allows you to track multiple objects real time in Google Earth. It also allows you to FTP to a server the KML files that it is generating.
I am looking at using it to put tracking info on my own server.
