          T -9 minutes to launch, weather is good, and no technical problems.

          Some cool night shots on the pad on NASA TV.

            They've launched and off they go to chase down the ISS. That was a nice night launch. Hopefully not much foam fell off the fuel tank.

            They said on NASA TV that it's Discovery's 25th birthday. This is also the 3rd-to-last mission for Discovery.

                Buzz Lightyear is returning to earth. From CTV news:
                Discovery will pull away from the international space station Tuesday afternoon, ending a resupply visit that spanned just over a week. The shuttle will bring home seven astronauts and a Buzz Lightyear doll that was launched last year.

                  Just watching NASA TV. Discovery will be landing at Edwards AFB today due to bad weather on the east coast. The deorbit burn will be happening in about 2 hours.

                    Discovery did its de-orbit burn and is coming down now for a landing. It will be landing in about 58 mins, it's over the Indiana Ocean right now. They said it will be coming down over Ventura, so for those of you there, look-up and see if you'll spot it.

                      Discovery is nearing the west coast. You guys in southern California might hear the sonic boom soon. 15 mins to touchdown.
