Shuttle docking, New Zealand & XP


If there is one thing I love the Internet for its watching stuff happening in space.  I regularly tune in to Nasa TV when the shuttle is up to watch the goings on.

As I write this the shuttle is preparing to dock with ISS.  Its cool being able to watch this.

Along with realtime video footage you get shots of some animations of where the shuttle and ISS are at, like the one below.

Couple of things caught my eye a few mins ago ... 1) they were over home (New Zealand) & 2) the app showing all this in mission control is running on XP (nice to see it helping to run these missions).
