Space Shuttle Lands

Discovery (STS-121) just landed safely.


Come along Harry and Mary and Joe.
Pack up some lunches, and everyone go.
Fill up the camper, drive down to White Sands,
And we'll pour the champagne when the Space Shuttle lands.

It's kinda cool to see the view from the flight deck. Though it also reminds you how relatively (and happily) bland a landing can be.
I was watching via NASA-TV, and when they shifted to the pilot's POV, I was confused at first, until I saw the runway coming toward me.
They showed that on NBC, too. It was way, way cool.
I was on the road, driving in to work, when the shuttle landed. Thanks for letting me know it came down successfully.
