Hi all,

Perhaps slightly OT but:

For those of you who can receive (and understand) Dutch national TV,

I have just been interviewed by 'Nieuwsuur' about the role of (spy) satellites 
in the search for lost flight MH370.

It will be broadcast 22:00 CET = 21:00 UT tonight, Ned. 2.

I do not know whether they will keep that in, but I briefly told them about how 
we track classified satellites and hence know which satellites might have been 
used to look for the IR signature of an aerial explosion etcetera. They filmed 
me while I was doing a mock observation with my camera.
