Welcome Home, Discovery

This was an exciting and positive mission. Much information was garnered by this recent shuttle flight. I am pleased to note a new concern with safety which included a broad vetting of safety issues before the launch. An extensive review of safety was done while the space shuttle Discovery was in space and a constant alertness on any possible incident that may cause for alternative measures in the re-entry of Discovery. Americans love their space program and it is the first priority of NASA and Members of Congress to ensure that it is a viable, continuing and safe program. The survival of the space program has to be premised on understanding the risk but at the same time embracing this new important culture of safety. Welcome home, Discovery.
