Discovery and the International Space Station
March 14, 2011
There is something about outer space that I always find interesting to learn about, even when I do not always understand the technical side of it. One of the things that I enjoy reading about is the launching of space shuttles. For example, on February 24, 2011 the space shuttle Discovery was launched into space for the very last time. I followed stories about Discovery before it was launched, and then watched the coverage on TV when it was launched from Kennedy Space Center in Florida in the late afternoon. If you would like to find out more information about the launch and mission, check out our link, Kennedy Space Center, in the Web Resources section. Discovery’s mission is to dock at the International Space Station and deliver a robot to them. If you want to more about the International Space Station, check out NASA Human Spaceflight where you can find information about missions to the space station, the space station itself, history about previous space shuttles, pictures and the latest news from NASA. I found both these links interesting and fun to explore.
