This is Discovery waiting for launch. You can see this and other pics at this NASA website. Our family is similarly making final preparations for our departure. We will be at the 5:02 p.m. launch on Saturday, May 31st, 2008. With the Lilly Teacher grant we will also be able to have lunch with an astronaut that day. (This will not be the astronauts who are on the shuttle that will be leaving a few hours later.) If you could sit down with an a astronaut, what would you want to ask him/her?
If you want to see our mission control board in our homeschool/play room and hear about a pre-departure mishap, check out "Typical."
