They're back!!!

This was the first time I've ever heard the sonic boom. It was amazing! Our friends are home!

It did not even occur to me that a shuttle landing would make noise. Watching too much sci-fi I guess...

Thanks for updating us on everything!

... and looking in good shape, too!

Congratulations to STS-121 and all involved in that mission (including you, Ms. Sarria)!

Now comes the next challenge - turning around and supporting the next mission at the end of next month! Good Luck!

I'm very happy that they made it home safely. Thanks for sharing your pictures too!

Congrats Damaris. I've never seen a landing... I wished I was there when I got the text message from Florida today at 5 AM. LOL.

Damaris,

I really enjoy your blog. I'd like to interview you for a few articles that we're publishing over at Meme Therapy over the coming weeks. If you're interested please contact me via email at jollyspaniard at yahoo dot com.

Regards,

Jose Garcia

I saw it on nasa TV. "Discovery, we like the other runway better, so why don't you pass over us, make a u-turn and land the other way around (without having the possibility to accelerate when necesary)?" The pilot simply said "ok" and not "Houston, Discovery here - we'd really like to land as soon as possible and go to have a beer or two so do us a favor and shut up" as I'd expected. very cool those guys.
