Discovery atop the SCA nestled into the MDD on Monday morning just prior to "pushback".
whats that thing on the back? Is it to close up the rockets?

Oh you are very very lucky! Brilliant.
Impressive, but sad. You know how I feel about the castration of NASA. In the long run it's not going to be good for the country.
Wow, very, very nice.
Knew I could count on you to get the picture of what I couldn't see in person!!!
