HDNet to cover nighttime Space Shuttle launch

HDNet will provide live coverage of the 28th U.S. mission to the International Space Station tomorrow night, Mar. 11, in high-definition. The Space Shuttle Discovery STS-119 will launch from Kennedy Space Center at the scheduled time of 9:20 p.m. ET. HDNet will begin their live coverage of the event at 9:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. PT).

STS-119 will deliver the Starboard 6 truss segment, giving the station its fourth and final set of power-generating solar wings. The S6 truss, with its set of large U.S.-constructed solar arrays, will complete the backbone of the station and provide one-fourth of the total power needed to support a crew of six.

HDNet is partnered with NASA to present all live shuttle launches through 2010.
