Discovery landing (Live).

What’s that?  Oh, the Discovery is an Earth orbiter; we used it for various scientific and economic purposes, back when we had an actual manned space program.  They’re bringing it into DC today to put it into a museum*: you can watch it here.

Take a good look, folks.  Because damned if I know when we’re going back up there.  But don’t worry: the administration plans to spend that money right here on Earth…
