Fellow Electronic travelers,

First concern right now is that there is a manned apace launch (STS-80)
scheduled, after some delay, for the same time as our PTK broadcast.  It
has always been my understanding that NASA-TV pre-empts PTK broadcasts
for live launch coverage.  The web site says 1:53pm Central Time (why
Central is used, I have no idea).  That would miss our broadcast unless
they show everything leading up to the launch.

I am following STS-80 with my class, too, but with a workshop and 12
students relying on the PTK broadcast, I am holding my breath.

I just REchecked the Russian Mars Probe page and found an extraordinary
AVI of the launch.  It is worth the long download.
