This morning, NASA announced the discovery of liquid salt water flowing seasonally on the surface of Mars. And although many people wanted to watch the press conference about this game changing development in space exploration live, they ran into very human error along the way.
Some disgruntled space enthusiasts took to Twitter to vent their frustration, using the promoted hashtag #askNASA to question how an organization that could send man to the moon and find water on Mars couldn’t operate a video stream.
While the NASA feed eventually started running smoothly, the Ustream channel is still offline at this time.
This was the second technical difficulty in 24 hours for NASA—users who tuned into the space agency’s stream of last night’s blood moon couldn’t actually see the moon because of cloud cover.
