The Columbia apparently isn’t the only thing that went down today. I was browsing the NASA website two or three times earlier this morning. But just now, I went back and got this:
ERROR: The requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://spaceflight.sc.wip.psiweb.com/shuttle/
The following error was encountered:
ERROR 312 — Cannot connect to the server
This means that:
The server might be down, or it could be inaccessible because of a temporary problem. Please try again later. If you receive this message frequently, contact your system administrator.
Either it’s down for technical difficulties (always possible), NASA took it down (doubtful) or everyone and their uncle is hitting it (highly likely).
