Two and a half hours to go before the launch now as I type this. I'm sure the crew will make it a good one.

...And I think I'm going to change the name of my ship to "Atlantis".

We could use Warpdrive right about now. Might actually solve some of our problems. Maybe skip the whole WW3 bit.

Godspeed to you, Atlantis.

She's at least 26 years old, at least according to her Wikipedia article. That's a pretty good run for a spacecraft. We've got bombers and warships that have been in service for longer than that.

I've got one of those; a Discovery-class starship I named Atlantis when I was ranking my Sci Officer through the Captain Rank. It seemed fitting for the class.

I loved it, after the launch, when the mission commander said "I love it when a plan comes together"...

The Irony of finding this post!!!!

I live on the Isle of man and was at a lecture the other day about partical physics and space related stuff in general, and the lecture was presented by Professor Brian Cox and the astronauts from the Space Shuttle Discovery. It was livestreamed too:

It was incredible, there are more on the playlist, and part 6 onward is the NASA crew.
