Forgive me if in the wrong section.

The new mars lander coverage begins about 6:30pm eastern tonight. Just thought some of you would like to know.

Here is the link www.nasa.gov...

I thought I heard them say at the press conference yeaterday that the first photos will be of the solar panel, to confim that they were properly deployed. However the bulk of the photos will not be uplinked from the lander to earth until tomorrow (something like noon or 1:00 PM GMT, 7:00 to 8:00 AM U.S. Eatern time).

I'm not sure why the delay, but I think it has something to do with the solar panels needing to recharge the lander's batteries before the photos are transmitted to Earth.

did anyone see the sat tv coverage from NASA?
it was epic, watching the techy peanut hounds in mission team shirts hover over their terminals, all showing calm side, then get twitchy as the EDL approaches...

ANYway, reason for my post is , IF YOU SAW the sat tv coverage from NASA,
who is that strikingly attractive brunette human female "manning" the left seat of the Earth Loop ????? console...

she must work at JPL long time to have a console seat (for the landing!), neh?

n e way, she is cute. one intelligent hottie.
