Current TV commercial for "IBM Cloud" shows an image of asteroid 2017 MV-2, touting that it was "live-streamed to millions of viewers from 220 miles above the Earth". I told my wife, "That CAN'T be right", so I looked it up. She says it was "live-streamed" from 220 miles, so it's not deceptive. I don't think even THAT was correct. The whole claim strikes me as a hoax.... from IBM, no less. Oddly, there are NO (zero) comments about this online. (The commercial was aired during a tennis match. Maybe no one watching tennis cares if it's correct or not... Only if the tennis ball hits the ground 3 mm outside the lines)
