For once you have tasted Concorde you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

Anyone willing to guess how far outside DC Discovery will be visible during the flybys? I'm still hoping to get a glimpse of her, but I doubt I'll be able to...

Crazy thing, watched her take off this morning on tv, didnt really get emotional. Now watching it circling D.C. on tv, balling my eyes out. Damn allergies......
If the neighbors think you're the rebel of the neighborhood, embrace it and be the rebel. It keeps them wondering what you'll do next...

NASA TV is not covering this?

Still this on NTV:

I'm sure you are not the only one.

This is like a funeral procession.

As mentioned above - NASA doesn't have a satellite truck that can pursue the SCA and send pics. There is nothing to see at Dulles right now other than regular airplanes landing. When it comes back into view, NASA will be back on air...

We're witnessing a national disgrace, to put it mildly.
