Wouldn't it be cool if the local PBS affiliate nearest the Cape in Florida would HiCam a full shuttle launch (astronaut prep, ingress into the crew quarters, cockpit checkout, launch control sequencing, sweaty brows, engine ignition, liftoff, and, dare we hope, live HD from orbit of a satellite insertion) to add to the PBS HD demo loop in Dolby Digital? I can't believe I'm the only one to think of this idea. Has it already been done? If so, why is PBS sitting on it? (It would have to be better than the inauguration repeats - HiDef of dreary inclement weather is still dreary...)
