Is there a transcript of what they are saying on the video somewhere? Not being a native spaeker, I'm having some difficulties understanding what is being said (especially because there's really much noise in it). /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

BTW, why does the announcer use "feet", since The BA always insists astronomers use kilometers? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif
Nah, I do realize he's talking to the American public...

(for those who don't know what I'm talking about, you can get the video HERE. (http://198.116.66.254:8080/ramgen/hq/sts107/sts107.rm).)

Any other reactions to the video yet?

When it comes to flying, the world isn't metric, but still in feet and nautical miles.
