    Click to see interactive video of Discovery's launch.

    It allows you to change camera angles and watch 3 different camera's at once.


    Very cool!
     
  2. It's a miracle it didn't fall apart like the last one.

    No it is not a miracle it didn't fall apart. It just took hard work and a lot of dedication.

    I know that we here in Canada only provide a few crew members as well as the Canada Arm, so I really want to thank the American public for funding such a worth while cause.

    I imagine that Canada actually contributes quite a bit the scheme of things in the space program. The arm being just one of them ;)

    G'day! I'm Australian
    Apparently, news reports in Australia confirmed that the Discovery Space Shuttle hit a bird on take-off. No joke, I actually saw that happen when I was wide awake (pfft... lol. I was half-asleep) watching the launch at 00:27 hours from home! :eek:
