Everything morning of the work-week, I’m awakened by my clock radio. Usually, the sounds coming from it are that of an especially annoying DJ. This morning was a bit different; there was a news anchor on the air giving live coverage of the shuttle Discovery making it’s way home. He said it would be landing in about 10 minutes; so I hit the snooze button. 🙂
When the clock went off again, I got up, headed for my TV and found some live video coverage of the event. I’d gotten up just in time as the shuttle landed safely a few seconds later. Welcome home Discovery crew and congratulations to you and to all of NASA on a successful trip!
