Welcome Home, Discovery

"CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA's efforts to put the international space-station program back on track took a major step forward Monday with shuttle Discovery's safe return from a near-flawless 13-day mission." -- "The Orlando Sentinel"

The return of the Discovery almost slipped by me. Having been a child before and during the Mercury flights and the early Apollos, it's surprising how the world has become so nonchalant about space travel. It used to be a very big deal. Our minds were in the skies, filled with wonderment and hope.
