  • NASA sets launch date for Discovery: May 15

    More than two years after losing the space shuttle Columbia and its seven crew, NASA said Friday it has set May 15 as its target date for once again launching shuttles into space.

    NASA said Discovery's launch is to be followed by a July 12 Atlantis launch.

    Discovery's crew of seven is to be led by Commander Eileen Collins.

      And why not, after all she succeeded on the same hard way as guys in her tests.
      About the launching, I cross my finger. It would be good to see NASA coronated with success and get at the end enough money to developp the Shuttles' successors.

            I may be in Daytona for the July launch...may have to go down to New Smyrna & stand on the beach to see it. (I've seen two rocket launches from there & it's a good spot)
