Don't know if anyone is watching NASA TV but it is awfully quiet.

Don't know about the controllers but my pulse is going up.

They are still seeking traking data. Going to contingency procedures.

No radar track either. Hope everything is alright and this is only a technical SNAFU. Should be visible from the Cape by now.
