Discovering Discovery


Shuttle Discovery! Yay, Launch Day for Shuttle Discovery! Oh wait, nope... scrubbed for the fourth time.

All the technical issues appear to have been handled, but no one can do anything about the rain.

Such is the nature of launches. I know two people who had to drive back to South Carolina today to get back to work, and are so sad they will miss it, but couldn't hang out in Florida any longer.

I know a couple more Floridians who plan to drive up each time there is a chance she might launch. There are a lot of very dedicated enthusiasts on the "Space Coast" right now, hoping the rain clears up quickly!

Will there be more interest from classrooms or news channels as everyone figures out we only have a few launches left??
