You can go there any time you want. Just go to www.youtube.com/reelnasa and you can see the latest space station communication, etc. For more, such as shuttle info, when you the space station will pass overhead in your area, etc., go to www.spaceflight.nasa.gov and there are a lot of multi-media areas. Some I believe are Flash, so won't work on the iPhone/iPod - just on a desktop.

If you don't want to use your browser, just use your uTube app and put NASA or ReelNasa in the search field. Let us know how that works for you!

I don't know why this won't work on your iPhone, unless it's flash-based. If so, it will NEVER work on any Apple hand-held device, now, or in the future. I will try this on my iPod Touch tonight.

G'day!

Won't work on the iPhone 3G. Should because it's Quicktime but there must be a component missing/unavailable for the iPhone.

Damn shame.

Why won't flash EVER work on iPhones? And how does the YouTube application work without flash?

I love the U.S., but we need some time apart.
