She said it was cool. We were laughing because we saw the kitchen tiles flying off and Discovery attached to the rocket by bungy cord. I wonder what they used the duck tape for lol

It was excellant and Im pleased everything went smoothly

We watched it too. Alex (my oldest son) noticed the flying foam right when it happened. Two more launches to go this year and after that: who knows! Glad everything went smoothly also!

Discovery Astronauts Inspect Shuttle For Damage

The six astronauts orbiting Earth on space shuttle Discovery are keeping busy during their mission's first full day in space. Friday, the astronauts spent around six hours conducting a heat shield inspection.

A large piece of foam had fallen away from an external fuel tank after Thursday's launch, which appeared to then hit the shuttle's thermal tiles.

But the incident occurred four minutes into the flight — a time, NASA analysts say, that presents far less danger than in the first moments after launch. The foam reportedly did no damage to the tiles.
