I'm so thankful Discovery had a safe launch this morning, and the US Manned Space program is back in action! NASA TV had great coverage, and thanks to the DVR, I can watch it later!
My son, Connor, wore his flight suit for the occasion. He's seen the Shuttle Enterprise at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington Dulles, and been to Space Camp in Huntsville, AL. Watching the STS-114 coverage helped tie it all together for him. I've also been to Kennedy Space Center twice! Now we just need to see a launch in person, or get a ticket for the BIG trip!
