WOW! Discovery now paves the way to get back on some kind of regular schedule in space and finish the International Space Station.
It was a beautiful mid-afternoon launch from the vantage point of my front yard. There were only a few wispy, white clouds here and there, but nothing to obscure the brilliant white contrail lifting vertically in the sky toward space.
It was a beautiful launch on a gorgeous holiday. Godspeed discovery!
