This all started rather innocently: I picked up a copy of the Atlas & MRO
DVD at the STAIF 2006 Conference, which contained a ton of great footage
taken by Lockheed-Martin during the initial launch of the probe in August
2005. I don't follow this kind of work normally, but since NASA is also
doing a live webcast, I've gotten permission from Lockheed to publish both 3
of their clips outlining the science, mission & launch of the spacecraft, as
well as a link to the NASA feed, which presumably will show data from the
craft at 1:24pm PST.
Thus, for anybody on broadband or sitting bored on their office-PC, you'll
be able to get a quick refresher in what this mission is all about, as well
as watching the live NASA footage online as it streams in.
