Discovery Returns (1 Comments) (link)
 Monday, 8-August-2005  16:52:09 (GMT +10) - by Agg

The Space Shuttle Discovery will begin the sequence to re-enter Earth's atmosphere in about 45 minutes from now, with landing scheduled in a little over 90 minutes. This is the first re-entry by a Shuttle since Columbia was destroyed during re-entry in 2003, with the loss of all seven crew.

As always you can keep track of things here in our Forums and NASA's "Return to Flight" mission page. If you have broadband, tune into NASA TV for live streaming footage. One interesting view that we will hopefully share via NASA TV will be footage from the International Space Station as Discovery streaks into the atmosphere below it.

Edit: weather delay, so still a couple of hours off. stay tuned to this thread for info.
Edit: waved off for 24h due to weather, bah.
