    I just watched one of them. Apparently they had 3 different
    "live" programs. I watched the one where they had a young lady providing commentary and introducing different team members of the program.

    There are a couple of things I wish they would have communicated better. I liked the update of the speed or velocity of the craft approaching the planet.
    But it would have been more interesting if they had marked the moment when the
    "7 minutes of terror" begins. I didn't get the sense of drama and excitement
    from the high speed approach from 22km/s to 5km/s to 1km/s.

    I also wondered what the heck were they spending all their time looking at on their screens. It would have been nice to see those and some explanations. Some people were flipping through paper copies of materials in books.

    What was the deal with the blue-light bars across the tops of the benches they
    were sitting behind?
