Shuttle Discovery Re-enters

Posted by BC on April 19th, 2010

Shuttle Discovery will return home on Monday. It will take a different route than usual and will fly across the USA. If you would like to see if you are in the line to see and/or hear Discovery as it heads for landing, you now can. More information can be found at spaceweather.com.

For those of you in the line of the fly-over, you will most likely hear a double sonic boom associated with the high speeds of re-entry.
