Very cool! I saw Challenger in person...tragic. I'm nervous everytime I see a launch because of that awful day. May Discovery and her crew travel safely!

Launch was delayed.Who said"NO-GO"? I think"IT IS HERSELF". I wait…while she looks back on past memories on the 39A.

Launch will be no earlier than Nov. 30 (2010, I hope). Astronauts returned to Houston (by airplane). Sorry for all who lost a bet ….
