MSNBC has live coverage of the SpaceShipOne launch that I have on now... except, that they don't have enough filler material, so they just have a camera on the crowd and are playing an.. interesting selection of music interspersed with occasional commentary. Weird. Like being on hold.

Ah well, at least I'll manage to see it despite being at work.

Edit: Actually, I think they're just having trouble with their audio. Lots of trouble. And this is their fix-it-fix-it-fix-it-fix-it music.

I don't know if MSNBC got it together, but I ended up seeing the landing live on CNN. Awesome.

Where do I sign up?

MSNBC eventually put the audio to a radio tuned to the frequency that the Scaled Composites guys were using. So, there wasn't much to look at during the flight, but I could hear all the radio chatter. They also showed the landing live. The only thing I saw in the sky were some contrails or something, but I think that was White Knight.

CNN got a great shot of the final approach and landing, they'll probably loop it on CNN or HN throughout the day. There's also a great shot if it on CNN's site.
