I seem to have missed most of it but picked up a link via twitter and the bits i have seen have been interesting. I think the last day is today it is running in Dallas with whatever their time zone is for UKers their breakfast seems to be our lunch about 6 hours difference i think.

Yep I thought that too but then I saw a bit where they are planning to do a big computer simulation of the various parts of a mission before hand that way they can put another 10p in the slot and have a reboot whenever the wax melts. :wink: :twisted:

I watched one quick interview, which was pretty much incomprehensible without context. If someone does a write-up, I'll probably read at least some of it, but I don't have time to watch a day-long video.

More and more information on the web seems to be embedded within video, rather than in written text. That's a real shame, because it takes much more time to watch a video than to read a piece of text with the same information. I guess the problem is that making a video can be done by anyone who can hold a camera, and watching it by anyone with eyes and ears, while making an article and the reading it requires literacy on both ends. Perhaps instead of flying to a star we should fix our school systems?
