    On Wednesday NASA scrubbed the launch of the Discovery Space Shuttle, due to a fault in a fuel sensor. The Shuttle may go for launch towards the end of the week, but that is looking dubious and the launch may be postponed until September. These are some of the images I was able to get, the obvious money shot is missing. It is my hope that the mission will continue to be delayed until September, when I will have a chance to return.

    Nice work on these shots, don't you hate when a shot just doesnt come through even though its right in front of you! I was fishing last week and had this amazing shot of the sunset with the reflection on the water and a set of ducklings following their mom with a wide angle on. I shot it and realized I had b&w film in the camera, /BONK! Anyhow very nice shots, hopefully you will get an ignition this week and can send us the only shot missing. Good luck!

    John,
    There are public viewing areas, but to get where I was one needs press credentials. It's not too hard to get them if you are an American citizen. They make the foreign press jump through a bunch of hoops though.
    Thanks Guys,
