Well, I guess NASA landed on Mars again...

... but I cannot get evidence of the spectacle at home because I'm not running a "supported browser". I guess I need to downgrade to Windwoes to be compatible with our marvellous gummint.

This is the 21st Century, clowns. I run a very modern browser (Firefox) and a very modern OS (Linux) on a moderately high-speed 'Net connection -- and I cannot watch something I paid good money to make happen and produce the video in question? What gives? This is no way to run a business. (Not that The Donald reads this, understands any of it, or gives a fig anyway.)

Not only am I not impressed -- I am very negatively impressed. We should be beyond this by now.

Can anybody in the real world see this or do we need to tithe to Micro$oft to see it?

I've just typed in the URL and it comes up for me, Carl. Bog standard laptop several years old, hence a bit slow, running Windoze 7 Premium edition. Funny but I was just reading about this expedition yesterday.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

No problems for me running Chrome in Linux. Also tried Firefox in Linux and it worked fine. Maybe you're using plugins that are incompatible with their video format?

Firefox?

Add a User-Agent Switcher. Then tell it to LIE to the web site, that you are using Edge or whatever they are looking for......
