glad to see the piece of junk didn't explode.....ya know...it's a terrible world we live in when we can transfer data from one atom to another....but we still use a space shuttle that was built in the 70's (or whenever).....my laptop has something like 40 times the computing power of the thing...rediculous....but glad people didnt die

I tried to stay up and watch it land, but I feel asleep. I woke up this morning and watched the landing on Comcast. Im happy that they got home safe. NASA really needed this, and I think its the start of the new space era for us.

onecool....chilll...there's no reason to get feisty....it's a known fact that the current method of interstellar conveyance (ie. "the shuttle") is outdated and dangerous.... how bout this one for research http://www.idlewords..._to_nowhere.htm ...the long and short of it is there is absolutly no reason for us to be in such a fevered hurry to be sending people out into space in an over priced, out dated, piece of junk.

Settle down everyone. The point of this thread is for us to be happy that the Shuttle landed safely, and all the astronauts made it home alive this time. :tazz:

Truth be told, I was very worried! I work for Aerospace, and several pilots that fly on our missions never made it home. In the past 5 years, 3 have died. It's sad everytime I think about it. The Shuttle disastors are on everyone's mind everytime one of them goes up. We all want them to be safe, and it's always a relief for me when any pilot makes it home!

God Bless their brave souls! They know very well the chances they take!

Yes
I am very grateful seeing as and australian was on discovery as well
This is a huge leap for nasa, seeing as their shuttles have been grounded for so long, but no doubt there will be a while before more shuttle are lifting off to space, especially with concerns about the foam covering and falling debris

Im really interested in Astrology and NASA! Got a bit nervous when they couldn't land, due to bad weather! Thank God! It was a safe landing! I reckon that NASA's Diginity was all written on Shuttle Discovery, specially after the Colombia Accident! :tazz:
