Catch a high-def lunch with International Space Station commander Michael Lopez-Alegria when Discovery HD airs the first live HD transmission from space Wednesday morning. Using a Sony HD 750A camera and through a partnership between NHK, Discovery and NASA, HDTV owners will get their best ever look at life in space from the comforts of our own homes. The broadcast is set for 11:30 a.m. (EST) and unlike some previous Discovery HD shows is on the US broadcast schedule.
