Farewell Discovery

Space Shuttle Discovery launching from Cape Canaveral, FL on it's last and final mission before being retired and placed in the Smithsonian.

I know you all are probably laughing right now because I dedicated a blog to this but you know I love our Space Program and you know you all LOVE it when I drag you outside to watch one!! :) Though I never aspired to be an astronaut I have always been fascinated by the launches and am sad that the Shuttle Program is being discontinued. Discovery will be placed in the Smithsonian and the rest of the fleet will be sold off to the highest bidding countries (BOOOOOOOOOOO!) Sadly there are only two launches left before the program ends in June.
