Discovery Home at Last

The space shuttle Discovery finally arrived home in Florida a few minutes ago.  Bad weather forced it to land in California on its return from space and there was a further hold  on its cross country journey because of weather.  Pity the weather cleared on the East Coast as if it hadn't it may have arrived at McDill which is close to where I am.

A year from now the shuttle will be 'retired' 6 more launches to go.

I eventually think that humanity will resolve its differences so we can pull our resources together and explore space, as one planet, with the benefits, shared for all (but then, sometimes I'm a dreamer)
