During week 15 (April 1994), and for the duration of the flight of NASA's shuttle Endevour, we will be retransmitting NASA Select TV programming as relayed to us through the NASA Lewis Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. In order to keep the load on the trans-Atlantic Internet link to a minimum, we do encourage viewers to use CU-SeMe in receive only mode and us the reflector closest to your site. Please do not send video to the reflectors. Special reflectors are provided for reception only on both sides of the Atlantic link:
In the US the video reflector 188.8.131.52 at Lewis Research center.
In Europe the video reflector 184.108.40.206 at Østfold Regional College.
The live video coverage from NASA Select can be viewed using the CU-SeeMe video conferencing software from Cornell University.Information about CU-SeeMe can be retrieved from the gated.cornell.edu ftp server, or ftp.hiof.no. NASA Select is also provided on the more sophisticated Mbone net. If you are at an Mbone site, we do encourage you to view suttle missions that way, as our activity is purely an experimental effort.
Thanks to Dick Cogger and the team at Cornell for providing us with CU-SeeMe, Charlie Kline at the University of Illinois for Maven and Mike Baldizzi for the NASA Select programming.
An example of the video that can be expected from the reflectors.
In the US the audio source 220.127.116.11 at Lewis Research center.
In Europe the audio source 18.104.22.168 at Østfold Regional College.
If you find the audio cracking up too much for your liking, please disconnect. This is an experiment and should not be expected to work. European users, please do not use the US audio source as too many streams will put an undue load on the Trans-Atlantic link.
These can be used with satellite tracking programs for tracing satellites. Programs are available from various sites on the Internet.
