Orbiter Vehicle 103... a.k.a. Discovery... Back in business again.
EDIT: I'm too lazy to post up a separate entry with this photo, so here you go:
Too bad the shuttle fleet is now grounded because that stupid foam problem hasn't been fixed.

HAPPY 4th OF JULY, EVERYONE!! Around 11 PM Pacific Standard Time last night, the "Impactor" released from the Deep Impact spacecraft struck Comet Tempel 1, which marked the first time a manmade object touched the surface of a comet (that sounds kinda...sexual, does it? Or is my mind that corrupted?). I'd be thrilled, if I wasn't bummed out on the fact that a compact disc bearing my name, and 625,000 others (click here to read more about that), wasn't vaporized along with the Impactor. Oh well. In other space news, Discovery is only nine days away from marking the space shuttle's return to space. "Woohoo!" if you're a geek and "Blah" if you're not. Guess which one I am. (Actually, don't answer that.) Click here to read an earlier rant I had about my name being torn into millions of pieces in space, hahaha.
