At least one of them must have Diablo III running.

Embedding disabled? Jerks.

Thanks for the links folks.

Did anyone else hear the host on NASA TV say "we're going to take a break and explain the penis?" Cause my girlfriend and I are certain she said penis. Oops.

I am watching both this and this streams right now. I am on GWJ vent in the Minecraft channel if you want to talk.

Edit: Just notified everybody on vent of this event.

Another edit: It seams the Livestream event is several minutes ahead of the nasa.gov link.

Lol, the sharing of nuts.

Also: Penis.

Peanut lucky charm apparently. Scientists as superstitious as athletes. Who would think?

lol! Just like a normal company, 5m before some massive undertaking some suit gets on the mic and wants to argue about getting "emails" and "estimates" in a timely manner.

This is awesome. I am watching live, a bunch of engineers and scientists land a robot probe on another planet.
