The local (Seattle, Washington) NBC affiliate is KING-TV. They sent a crew to film Yuri and Jerome’s arrival at Sea-Tac on Thursday and another crew to film events, including the Strong Tether Challenge, at yesterday’s first day of the Space Elevator Conference.
A segment on these topics made both the afternoon and evening news on KING-TV. This segment has been posted on the web here. I thought it was a very well done piece; not sensationalistic and with all the facts correct.
Cosmic Log is one of my very favorite daily reads – I highly recommend that you subscribe to it.
