Discovery is back...

...and what a spectacular photo. Re-entry started at 400,000 feet, at several times the speed of sound, aiming at a small handkerchief called Edwards Air Force Base in California's Mojave desert.

NASA reports complete success.

  1. You can see more great images on Nasa's site itself. That's where we should be - out there, walking amongst the stars.

  2. I tried that one earlier, TCM, but couldn't get it to open for me. I suspect it's deservedly very busy. :-)
