The many delays of Discovery liftoff worked to my advantage as I was in Melbourne for the weekend and could see the event (albeit about 30 miles away) from the screened lanai. It was pretty impressive, lighting up the sky, in high contrast with the midnight blackness. The visits to space are so phenomenal - I remember watching the landing on the moon and various other orbital travels on television as a child - such a feat! Wonder if there is a realistic opportunity for a first-hand space adventure in my lifetime....hmmm! Viera, FL
