What's Discovery?

US space shuttle. Launched like a rock taped to a firework, flies like a brick. Doesn't like thunderstorms.

Oh. I thought they'd stopped all that stuff years ago.

Still might. The shuttles are due to be mothballed in 2010, and it's likely the autumn mission will be delayed into next year.

Hooray!

Now it would be nice if the news media would get back to reporting on the proposed tenth planet, which they dropped like a hot potato when Discovery's foam problems were noticed.

We ran into a thick crowd of people not moving at Heathrow between flights. Seemed that a few hundred people were watching Discovery land. We joined them. Happy ending. We went on to the duty-free shop.
