STS - 121 Discovery

Here are a few pictures of interest I captured from NASA TV this morning. Lift off shoud be in just under 3 hours. Sorry about the grainy shots, but NASA TV tends to be that way. I wish them a safe mission!

Nice screen shots. I watched it myself on NASA TV. Nice addition to DirecTV. I've got Tivo and I've been thinking of setting up a USB Wi-Fi adapter. Supposedly you can access the Tivo programs on your PC.

Here's a link to my Astovan page.

That was a great launch. Great the see the Shuttle back in space again. I enjoyed the camera angles, especially the tank mounted camera during roll and tank separation.
