Many of the other sample images were very good as well. I particularly liked the following two 'geological' images:

This is a natural color, 2.4-meter high-resolution QuickBird satellite image featuring the upheaval crater in the Canyonlands of Utah.

This multispectral image of Mt. Etna was collected by QuickBird on October 27, 2002. This image shows the volcano as it continued to rage four days after it began erupting on October 27. Visible in the lower-right corner of the image is the nearby town of Zafferana Etnea.

Doug, may be I missed some piece of information... Quickbird resolution should be 60cm/pixel, are you referring to a particular spectral channel?

I was referring to the resolution quoted by Mongo!

I know there are commercial earth-obs at <1m/pixel - but I dont believe there are any data sets publically available that will even match the resolution of MRO iirc

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the "BUMP" but just wondered if anyone was following today's shuttle launch and by what means you are doing so.

NASA TV refuses to work on my machine and so I am relying on the following :

http://science.ksc.nasa.gov/shuttle/countd...o/video45m.html

and

http://www.nasa.gov/returntoflight/launch/launch-vlcc.html

Does anyone have any better suggestions?

Many thanks

Brian

I'd use spaceflightnow.com for text based updates - usually fast and accurate
