Good evening dear world.....Good news
The Space Shuttle Discovery blasted off successfully today at Kennedy Space Center earlier today. The astronauts on board are Eileen M. Collins - Mission Commander, James M. Kelly - Pilot, Charles J. Camarda - Mission Specialist, Wendy B. Lawrence - Mission Specialist, Soichi Noguchi - Mission Specialist representing the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, Stephen K. Robinson - Mission Specialist and Andrew S.W.Thomas - Mission Specialist.
Right now I am wondering how the earth looks from a space shuttle in outer space. I am not seeing what the astronauts are seeing so I wonder if where they are is as beautiful as I imagine it to be. Everything must look different up there.
I can look out at the night but I can't begin to imagine what the night looks like out there in outer space. I just wonder if the stars are different in space than they are in the night sky. I also wonder if space is blue like the night here in Georgia. Its hard to think about a place I have never experienced or shall ever experience.
Good night Space Shuttle Discovery..... Good night astronauts..... and Good night dear world..... Sleep well everyone
