Best NASA Show Ever?

Between the livestream feed, the "Eye on the Solar System" simulation, and the surface images that came almost immediately, that was the best NASA experience I've ever seen -- at least since I vaguely remember watching the Apollo 11 moon landing on a little black-and-white TV late one night long ago -- and maybe better.

It's hard to beat man's first moon landing, but the Web gave this an extra immediacy, with far more information and angles being delivered in real time -- more of a sense you're watching from the inside.

The first images should be here sometime soon.

Update: Here's one, from the rear:

I agree it was exciting just watching the reactions of all the technicians as each stage was completed successfully
