  1. I wanted to WATCH live coverage of this deorbit and landing.
    The only live coverage was of the monitors at Mission control centers for Nasa and Russia.
    There was NO LIVE coverage from the spacecraft or the air or the ground.
    Waste of time in my estimation. NASA did not provide what they publicized.
