The Rocket's (red) Glare

Space Shuttle Discovery flying over Savannah, Georgia about 4 minutes into the flight of STS 121.

 

Happy Independence Day

 

One of the most emotional and memorable moments of my life was the morning of October 3, 1988. I was at Edwards Air Force Base to watch Discovery land, completing the first Shuttle mission after the Challenger disaster. It is especially poignant to see her in flight again.
