This is a German concept and they just opened their US version. Would the Old Continent be overtaking the New one in more fields than trains, rockets, mobiles, airplanes and democracy...?

Where is the International Space Station? Is it above your head or above Mongolia? Perhaps it's that bright light at sunset, or is that Venus? This site takes the guesswork out of locating some of the larger man-made objects in space. You can locate the space station, Mir, Hubble, or Chandra, and many other bits and pieces of space technology.
Three-dimensional images help you track these objects as they orbit Earth. Download the special NASA software, or follow the links to other tracking sites. Whether you're an avid sky watcher or a paranoid, space-junk freak, this site will keep you abreast of the opportunities or the danger.

Naturally, there's an "Uh-Oh, It's Your Boss" panic button. Click and your screen shows B2BNow.com, replete with words like "travel business center," "markets," and "finance." This screen is so painfully earnest about business that it's hard to tell if the entire B2BNow is a put-on.
