Farewell Discovery

Discovery is my favourite of the 3 remaining shuttles. Discovery was the first shuttle I learnt about and it fascinated me. It must have been back in 2002, when I was a mere 12 years old, there was a programme on the TV – Rocket Men of Mission 105 – on National Geographic. It astonished me. It followed the training of the crew, launch preparations, the launch and mission at the International Space Station. I was hooked. My obsession with the space programme started here.

Space Shuttle Discovery

So there she stands now, the most historic, most flown spaceship there is. Discovery, on launch pad 39A ready to head up tomorrow at 2150GMT. It’s going to be sad to see her go but I’m really looking forward to the launch, it’s going to be beautiful.
