Today, the National Educational Simulations Project Using
Telecommunications (NESPUT) schools are running a simulated space shuttle

As part of that program, Willoughby Middle School is transmitting a
simulated Shuttle Tracking Map through the Univ. of Kansas reflector.

The IP is

We are using the Connectix camera, a magnifying glass and the Orbitrak
program (NASA Spacelink) to generate/tranmit the image.

We are SLIPped, here, but the rate of change in the map (1 orbit every 90
minute) is very forgiving for the frame rate we can use.

Stop in until 4:00 EDT, have a look, and send comments to

Questions about the simulated space missions are also welcome, but won't be
answered until the mission ends tomorrow morning.
