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.

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

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