Discovery, Thank you for your 39 missions to space to improve life on Earth including 13 missions to help construct the International Space Station. Thank you for the 2 weeks that my STS-124 crew mates and I were privileged to live and work onboard.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STS-124

Thank you to the 10's of thousands of dedicated people who designed, constructed and maintained this incredibly marvelous masterpiece of technology.

Thank you, and all your fellow astronauts, for all the emotions you gave us on the Space Shuttles to expand our knowledge and our frontier!
 
I was part of USA Ground Ops for this launch and was on Red Crew when it went up. (USA Elevator Shop, We lifted you the first 195 ft into space!!)

It going to be great to be able to visit Discovery again soon here in D.C. Which is where I've moved since the mass layoff at KSC. Any idea, how long it will be before it is on full display so I can see her again?
 
Discovery means a lot more to me than the others in the fleet. I posted a long-winded, yet abbreviated of detail, story about this yesterday. (For the bits I was forced to omit, I can only thank a nameless USA contractor for a day in my much younger life, for which there is no superlative adjective adequate enough to describe.)

...Though you'll be on display for the public to see, we'll still "miss" you. We'll miss your spectacular displays put on at launch time, and the double sonic booms heralding your return. We'll miss the downlink video you provided of the rest of us tiny people back here on Earth. We'll miss the constant feeling of your existence as part of our human adventure.

До свидания, Discovery.
 
Not sure what Jacc is advertising.. Rap maybe?
Aleksandr, after translating your reply, there is interest on my part, but really need to place that in a hangout...
 
Thank you Discovery for bringing all your Crews home safe and sound from the most harsh environment in this universe!
 
The third spacecraft to join the space shuttle fleet? Isn't it actually the fifth?
 
Enterprise, Challenger, Columbia, Atlantis, Discovery, Endeavour... How exactly is it the third? Am I missing something?
 
Enterprise wasn't a spacecraft, it was a test rig for the fleet - thus never left the atmosphere and Atlantis was delivered a year after Discovery.
 
Okay, I'll give you the one about Atlantis (my mistake), but Enterprise was intended for spaceflight and almost flew twice. Whether or not she should be considered a part of the fleet is really semantics, isn't it?
 
Conversely, Challenger wasn't originally intended for spaceflight -- but between the two of them, Enterprise would have been the more difficult to refit, so it never was fitted with functional main engines or shield tiles. That does make Discovery the third functional orbiter.
 
I don't think it could have been launched even if NASA wanted to - it was considered for redevelopment as a space capable orbiter after Challenger exploded, but instead Endeavour was built.

The only flights Enterprise did were as part of atmospheric testing and control.

NASA considers Columbia to be the oldest in the Shuttle Fleet, which is good enough for me.
 
i challenge all the scientists of Nassa in 30-4-2012
and then in 30-5-2012 ? on you tube video
I will destroy the legend of Nassa ? I will correct the big mistakes made by Enistin and Kepler and Nassa ? and i will put a new system of the solar system by new laws i discovered ?
please watch my video
 
wait my explosion video to see Nassa Scientist destroyed by me
ok ? if i didn't make this i will say i am the the most stupid man in the world
and announced this on you tube
areYOU SATISFY
 
For some reason you make me want to 'take off every Zig' - for great justice.
 
ok
see my video
don't forget the day
god help nassa scientists for this ? the greatest thing i will make every one understand the universe and solar system better than astronomy scientist in the world ?
follow me then you will see
ok
 
Against my better judgement I'm gonna follow him, just to see what's so important that he thinks he's going to say.
 
hello
thank you
did any one can send my challenge to Nassa astronomy scientists to see my discovered and my correction for all laws of Kepler and Enstine and then see the result /? it will solve all what they need to restudy the solar system and how it work ? i will help them to understand and walk in right way
it is important for them to work better in future ? for the world
Thank you a lot
 
So first you want to destroy them and now you want to help them... Interesting...
 
I'll wait and read about it in the mainstream media.

Who is Nassa away, he must have really upset you? Anyway, back to the conversation about NASA Space Shuttles.
 
+Tony Merryfield +Vlad Taushanov There are strange people with highly unique knowledge (and secrets of their own). I will be looking forward to the revelations on youtube. Hope he manages to upload a video there. On this site a profile pic (would be interesting) and the proper addressing of commenters are missing. ;)
 
the name of video will be
New creation of astronomy science
 
for example do yo want to know why the scientists didn't know all thing about our solar system ? the reason is Kepler and Enstien
this tow men stop the understanding our solar system as it ?
all person can be better than any scientist in Nassa after you watching my video ?it will be the magic in astronomy science
 
Well, if your knowledge of astronomy is as good as your command of Her Majesty's English, then this should be quite a treat! :)
 
i am from Syria and do not talk or write English good i translate this in Google ? so do not upset from my bad English writing ?
just to know me better ? if i am wrong ? I will put myself for week on you tube video and say i am the most stupid man in the world ? is this enough
and i want from scientists to do as i do if they are wrong
Thank you
 
+slah aldin Explaining breakthroughs in science to a global community will not be possible without proper wording and presentation of the thoughts and reasoning. Google Translator is not sufficient for that undertaking. Already claiming to be superior to Kepler and Einstein (I think you mean Albert, your spelling does not say so) even to all Nassa (!!) scientists cannot provoke any other reaction than not being taken seriously, to put it politely. Simply ridiculous.
 
the science is simple to understand and you understand me when i talk and explaining ? there are millions of people waiting me in Arab ? do you know why because this is from Quraan Alakareem this mean from Islamic science in Quraan
why you don't want to wait my video and then judge
this will make me a most smarter man in world after you study my discovered ? because you will know the history of the solar system well and new laws for it
thank you
 
thank you very much
It's a major scandal for scientists. they are waiting for their bad days
Do anything before you see your fault that you failed( Kepler and Albert Einstein and NASA)
oh my god their are billions of human will see that video ??
 
+slah aldin Findings based on Islamic science in the Coran? That's not science, these are religious believes. Billions of humans to wait for that? Google would be pleased to have only 1 billion on this platform, the same is true for youtube. You may find allies for your ideas among Creationists, maybe. Guess, you will have to preach elsewhere.
 
our Quraan is the first and the only sorce of all sciences tha is to say that scientist did not envent sth new rather they modified it but thanks GOD first then our PROFET than the scientist.
 
Dear Peter
If I told you that the reason for my discovery is a mistake for the Kepler .and Einstein advanced perihelion ?
they don't know why the planets do that ? Einstein was calculated the advanced perihelion by chance
and i found a reasons for all
and why the planet shift their axial ?
why mars rotate in his locations and where was it rotate before and why Vinus have more pressure than earth with 99 time
from where came the Kuper belts
why we are very tall men . before many millions years
why jupiter is big and it is gases planet
why pluto so far and small planet
do you know how gravity act on the planets
more more things i will answer about it by laws
why ice age happend
why the earth-quick and volcano happened and when become more and less
thank you
 
+chargi souma You may have your belief in Coran as others have their belief in the Bible. But that is religion and not science.
+slah aldin I guess all your explanations are that all this is the work of God (or Allah, as you call him). You are not the first one to say that, so there is nothing revolutionary in your "findings".
 
my discovery will open a new thought about a new way for communication and treatment and and understanding the Gravity very well ? and nothing is impossible like we can use the gravity in our life
all one will see that in my video just how can develop our knowledge
 
i respect Usa ? but i don't like the scientists who draw our wrong way for develop our life ? we need a beautiful life for
all person and peace
 
Believe or not believe in my theory i will be the new blood for new astronomy science ?
Watch then think then judge on ?
Watch my video in 30-4-2012 ?
and the next one in 30-5-2012 ?
To learn the biggest discovery in astronomy science
((( I challenge NASA scientists ?))))
