Pictures of Discovery's Launch

Here are some pictures from the launch. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
STS-114 Slideshow

Because of the foam problem, the shuttle fleet has been grounded until engineers are fully confident and able to understand the problem. However, it seems like our crew will still be able to return in Discovery safely. Full Story...

Hi! Oddly enough, my goal is to become an Astronaut as well! I'm hoping to do a double PHD in Astrophysics and Biology when I'm about 40 and then go soon after. I really hope you make it!

And yes, the launch was amazing. I was so upset because it was supposed to take off on my birthday, but it's still incredible!

Thanks for your blog!

Yeah by the way the fleet is grounded again.

TIME TO STOP THE SHUTTLE PROGRAM.

They need to replace it, and should have been working on that for a while now.

I think that your dream of being an astronaut rocks! I'm not a science major, but the space program and the space fleet has always interested me (I'm a fan of NASA TV..shhh..don't tell anyone! :) ) I think it's great that you're educating people on space exploration and showing others that they can reach their dreams if they work for it!! Good luck!!!!

Ahoy there! I found your Blog through the Blogger web-site and wow, you are gonna be an astronaut! That's beyond awesome! I have always wanted to be an astronaut too, but when I just super-sucked at physics, I gave up. Wow! Well, I'd better start reading now what you've got to tell. Exciting stuff!!!! Miles of smiles, Astrid.

That was awesome! Great set of pictures! I'm hoping they come home safe. It's time we updated out technology on the shultes, maybe even replaced them.

Good luck on your goal!

Awesome pictures!! Thanks for sharing these, and the rest of your brilliant website!! Nice to know, as we work to re-invent our space program, that wonderful folks like yourself continue to "boldly go!" Best wishes!

Nice pictures of an out-dated pointless hunk of junk landing.

Little trips up to low-Earth orbit and back have zero merit, scientific or otherwise.

All they achieve is publicity. It's like some kind of hugely expensive, space-based reality TV show, and nothing more.

The shuttle program should have been put out of its misery 10 years ago. It's time to come up with something better.
