91. Someone suggested I was being alarmist yesterday
Edited on Wed Jul-27-05 10:46 PM by rocknation

for posting this pic of debris falling off, and what I thought was a very cavalier attitude: "By Sunday, the mission management team will have enough information from the cameras to know whether Discovery is in safe enough condition to return to Earth..." I was assured there was nothing to worry about because the orbiter hadn't been damaged.

I still say that NASA knew that the previous shuttle WASN'T "in safe enough condition to return to Earth" not long after its takeoff. And just like the shuttle that blew up before that one, they seemed to be under some sort of pressure to stay on schedule. Is history about to repeat itself?
