Two years ago 7 new stars appeared in our skys.
Two years ago the Space Shuttle Columbia, the first one to go to space, was lost during re-entry, just 16 minutes before its scheduled landing at KSC, and with it, the lives of 7 braves men and women.

The model looks very good.

Yes, let's wish that the next mission (STS-114 to the ISS) goes well for NASA and the crew of Discovery, led by Eileen Collins.
The launch is planned from mid May to early June.
