But forgot about it until too late.
It is described as a "text book launch".
Yesterday I heard how much the "roomette" they will be attaching weighed. (Again, U forget.) I also didn't catch how many missions this makes for this particular shuttle.
"Harmony".... that's a nice name!
Adding a living space onto the space station... S p a a a c e S t a t i o n (drawing the words out slowly, savoring the sound)... the world has a space station orbiting it right now. Amazing to me still.
When I was 7 years old, watching the first man walking on the moon, I fully expected man would be living there by the time I was the age I am now. Still, a space station is a good start.
Shuttle launches at 11:38 a.m. ET
Leading the Discovery crew is commander Pamela Melroy
The shuttle will carry a live-in compartment to be attached to space station
