Well done Salem.

With the anniversary coming up, most people focus only on STS-107. It's nice to see her entire career.

Today is the anniversary of the first launch attempt.  The launch came on the 20th anniversary of Gagarin's launch.

Launch was 12th April...I'm in a time zone where we're already in that date. I presume you're West of here!

What was the date there at 1200 UTC on 12 April?

lol, how embarrassing...the guy who changed the battery on my watch this week moved the date forward by a day, my watch has been reading 12th April all day and it's only been the 11th! Hence my post in the early hours of this morning.

psloss I take it all back, the anniversary is indeed tomorrow.  :-[

Bouncing again for another anniversary. And this time, my watch is set correctly - it is definitely 12th April in Britain ;)

Great Video!  That STS-3 landing still scares me like it did when I saw it live!

You're welcome guys :)

Don't forget that I have 3 other orbiter tributes on the same YouTube channel: Challenging Endeavours, Fleet Leader, and Spaceplane Sailing. No points for guessing which orbiter each music video relates to. The Discovery one was retweeted or favourited by 3 different astronauts (including Nicole Stott) on the 3rd anniversary of STS-133 two months ago, so it's probably my proudest of the three (despite actually having the least views).

Discovered your excellent piece of work just now. Well done and a fitting tribute to the best ship of the fleet.

15 years ago today on Feb 1st, 2003 the OV-102 Columbia and her STS-107 crew didn't make it back to Florida.

Hail Columbia!
