On March 8, 2002, KFMB Channel 8, the CBS affiliate in San Diego, broadcast a feature story about Carla Latimer's third-grade class at Miramar Ranch Elementary School working on Project Starshine. The 2-minute story showed the children grinding mirrors to be placed upon the Starshine 4 satellite, which will be launched into orbit by the Space Shuttle in January 2003.
Below are three different digital versions of the KFMB broadcast. They can be either viewed on-line using Windows Media Player or downloaded to your computer. All are the same length; they vary in resolution and bit rate.
If you have a dial-up modem, then you should use the small clip for viewing on-line. You can try the medium clip, but it may not play as smoothly, depending upon your connection speed.
If you have a broadband connection, such as DSL or cable modem, then you should use the medium clip for viewing on-line. You can try the large clip, but it may not play as smoothly, depending upon your connection speed.
You can download any of them regardless of connection speed, but bear in mind that the bigger the clip, the longer the download speed. To download them using Internet Explorer, right-click on the link and select Save Target As.... With Netscape Communicator, right-click on the link and select Save Link As.... If you have problems using Netscape, you'll probably have better luck with Internet Explorer.
Small clip -- use this for viewing with a dial-up modem (about 4MB)
Medium clip -- use this for viewing with a high-speed connection (about 10MB)
Large clip -- highest resolution, especially for downloading to and playing from your hard drive (about 23MB)
