Ooohh, goody. Will they be showing live, light-speed delayed pictures
on that radio show?
J.

P.S. no, I don't watch the radio channels very often. Why do you ask?




P.P.S. ESA/NASA could show the mission control centre as the
landed-safe/bounced-and-broke-Rosetta confirmations come in on all
national European and public service USAlien channels just to make the
geeks happier. They won't. And the national broadcasters wouldn't take
the feeds live anyway. Not even the "news" channels. Science ain't
news. *Sport* is Real News. Politics is Really Real News. Science is a
filler if there's no gossip to pad the last thirty seconds of a
programme.
Media types truly have no idea.
J.



Mike.


I suppose the media were discomfitted by the CERN/LHC public
commissioning, no bang or anything interesting just a dot on the screen,
how photogenic/newsworthy was that?
Now if ESA could arrange for a clanger to come up to a camera lens on
the comet lander probe and take a selfie, they'd be all over the story

It seems 08:35 is the release time of the lander and comet-fall is some
hours after that

I'd love to be a fly on the wall of the committee room currently
discussing the pros/cons of deploying ptolomy versus battery life for
"main sequence" experiments and chance of moving into more sunlit
posistion, versus flipping over or off into space
