Am I the only one who will miss Discovery? It is an image of space flight to me, takes me back to being Rachels age and sitting in a classroom watching a launch.
I appreciate it's engineering; the millions of man hours that have gone into it's design, production and maintenance. But mostly I love the excitement of new possibilities.
I hope something similar will spark Rachels imagination and awe at possibilities, but for today I will find clips of discovery launching and amaze her with that.
Happy Retirement Discovery, you brought space to us, thankyou.
