Discovery Launches!

Discovery after Rollback of RSS

Moments ago, Space Shuttle Discovery launched  for its last mission. We were not there to witness the launch in person. We watched on NASA-TV. The shuttle has now traveled far enough that it cannot return to KSC, should something go awry. “All systems are continuing to operate as expected.” Good luck to Discovery‘s crew.

  1. Did anyone hear the commentary on NPR’s Morning Edition” today? It was great. The commentator did a “This is Your Life” tribute to Discovery complete will a comment from her first captain and the playing of the first wake up music.
