Today is the day Discovery Launches

So right now I am getting ready for work.. I have been up since 3:45 am because I want to get in early, plus to beat the tourist traffic. I am so excited today. The only thing that can stop us today is the weather. I have a good feeling things will run smoothly today. I will upload a picture of the KSC atmosphere during launch.

From Spaceflightnow.com as of 4:45am:
"Discovery's seven astronauts will be gathering for a pre-launch snack and photo opportunity in the dining room of crew quarters at 5 a.m. That will be followed by a weather briefing and then suitup. The crew will head for launch pad 39B at 6:49 a.m., arriving about 20 minutes later to begin boarding Discovery. The ship's crew compartment hatch should be closed for flight around 8:30 a.m"

Hey,

It's now 3:32 here in Tucson. I'm watching NASA TV and browsing the internet to get info. You're so lucky to be there Damaris.

Take as much pics as you can and post them all on your blog.

Thanks.

Hi Damaris,
That's a great ambition: to go into space. And when you do I will tell people "I was on the internet with her before she became famous".
The best of luck to you.

Hi Damaris
When I go to the shopping centre I use positive visualisation to find a carpark. I just imagine there is one right outside the main entrance, this works for more more often than not. Just visualise it, and you will make it happen. Of course, the study will go a long way too. Thanks for sharing!
