This will be like a launch day thread, so very specific only to updates (not as relaxed with viewing ops and cheerleading as slow times during previous FD threads).

And just to add, the STS-133 Cheerleading thread is located here:

Only noting as the last two days (understandably) have gotten a little sidetracked in the threads, but this is Discovery's final landing - we should keep this on updates.

1 minute from a period of 10 minutes of ratty COMM, giving the crew a 10 minute snooze button.  ;)

I wonder if the song will be a bit of "My Way" by Sinatra - for Discovery. That would be nice.

Wakeup song is "Coming Home" by Gwyneth Paltrow, for the entire crew, picked by the ISS flight control team.

Let's hope we get a landing today!

And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.
