Discovery lands safely

Commander Steve Lindsey has flown the Shuttle Discovery to a picture-perfect landing at NASA's Cape Canaveral landing strip. The successful mission -- from launch to landing -- has sparked considerable 'good vibes' in the popular media, which is a nice change.

The astronauts, the mission control team, and the entire shuttle staff deserve credit for their hard work over the past months (and years, really) to get the orbiter back in shape for the remaining missions.

On a personal note, we at NSS hope that this means a mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope will go forward. Time will tell. Ad Astra!
