More on Reuters at Launch Pad 39A

Reuters has posted a 10 minute video that shows how they set up their remote cameras and can now transmit a photo to their clients within minutes of a shuttle launch.

Very cool.

Ive worked around Scott Audette and the reuters crew before down there at KSC and the Merritt Island National Mosquito Refuge.

Shuttle remotes are one of the more technically challenging thing I've tried.

More disheartening is showing up at the main gate at 5AM to get the car checked by security only to be told by the guys at the gate that its going to be scrubbed and you have to wait 8 hours before being able to change batteries in the field.
