Godspeed Discovery 3/15 by canaveralgumby on 11 March 2009 6:16pm
 
Great photo from last night (I wish I could say I took this pic!):

Meanwhile in other space news, Stephen Colbert is urging all members of the Colbert Nation to go to NASA's website and vote to name the new Space Station module, well, "Colbert." So far, "Colbert" leads the write-in voting. Last night SC had a NASA official on his show, who was, shall we say, non-committal about whether NASA would honor the voting!

Crap, there's a mechanical problem and they won't try the launch again til Sunday. Too bad, the moon won't be full.

MEANWHILE!:

Great shot, Cori! I really want to see a Shuttle launch before the program ends.

Not much time left. If I can find a way to get to Florida, can I camp in your backyard?

I've seen Shuttles land quite a few times back when they were doing that in CA - it's amazing -

you hear two sonic booms and then it drops out of the sky like a rock.

(I've tried to edit this so most of the message doesn't get

lost off the right side of the message area.

Does anyone know why that happens?)

Sorry, the alignment seemed to do with the million-character link on my first post, which I have removed.

Cori, you're a genius. How did you figure that out?
 
Re: Godspeed Discovery 3/15 by canaveralgumby on 8 April 2009 11:55pm

Good going, Cori. You're definitely a genius.
