KEY REASONS TO INCLUDE
TWO TV STATIONS IN TVI MAGAZINES WEEKLY MEDIA
NBC's Conan Nolan
Frequently on the "special interest" scene, works
easily with interviewees. He does his home work and
seems to have real interests in assignments covered
from my perspective and observations.
His most notable Genesis
mission insight/quote, when I was talking to him
about the Genesis $260 million cost, was "You might
think of the Genesis cost as a quarter mile of

and cameraman with John Deer that in the two shot
in front of JPL center entrance. The small three
person crew, (no image of sound man in van) was the
only major local network to cover Genesis from
dawn. Angela and her cameraman enjoy covering JPL
missions inspite of getting up at 3 to 4 a.m. Both
are hard workers, professional and obviously enjoy
their work to produce timely, clear, concise
reporting with an international flair. Angela is
starting her broadcast career but has already
worked in China before returning to the West Coast.
develops it's space program, are there any future
special assignments for Angela back in China?
MISSION PERSON OF THE WEEK
In my carefully considered opinion, the
following people reflect the hard work and
disappointments and ending of the Genesis Mission.
TVInews, should award any of the hard working
reporters mentioned in this news special, including
our own Gary Sunkin, as well as Dr. Elachi. Dr.
Elachi stands and speaks rock solid about the
difficulty, risks and rewards of all space
missions. "What we do is not easy," "Things can and
do go wrong," "We learn from these problems as we
move forward," "It's the nature of exploration."
Persons of the week could include all the
members of the mission team who achieved a 99%
successful mission until 21 miles above earth when
the Drogue parachute deployment failed to occur. At
4 miles high the main Parafoil deployment didn't
happen but mission's craft held up fairly well
after a 193 mph impact in the Uath desert. If
something breaks over the weekend I'll e-mail my
thoughts. Right now the team is quite disappointed
and I believe they will be more accessible after
the condition of the capsule contents is better
understood (soon) and the reasons for deployment
failure (much later--weeks or months).
