One of our forum members Cantible lives very close to Cape Canaveral and just witnessed the launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery. These pictures were taken at the park next door to Cantible on the water front. He writes that he has never seen so many peeople attend a launch before and that it was very loud. (Cantible - we need to sample it! )
This marks the United States' return to manned space flight for the first time since the Columbia disaster in February 2003. Wishing the crew a safe and successful journey.
Thanks for sending these Cantible.
