Go, Discovery!

We're keeping positive thoughts flying for the seven-member crew of STS-114 aboard Space Shuttle Discovery.

As a lifelong proponent of the space program, I'm thrilled that America is back in space. I'm hopeful that we'll stay on course for the President's proposed return to the moon and ultimate manned landing on Mars within the next 30 years. That we haven't sent explorers to the moon in more than three decades is pitiable, in my humble opinion. There's no calculating the number of scientific advancements we've missed during the time that the space shuttle has been the sole focus of our space effort.

But for now, let's wish mission commander Eileen Collins — the only woman ever to command a U.S. space mission, making her second flight in the main chair and fourth overall — and her team safe travels and an uneventful landing a week from now.

I'll never forget when the Challenger went up in the 80's. Yes, keep good thoughts all around...
