Liftoff of Space Shuttle Discovery on NASA's Return to Flight Mission is scheduled for 3:51 p.m. EDT July 13.As a resident of Lubbock, TX we were saddened by the loss of Willie McCool in the space shuttle Columbia disater. Coronado High School was my alma mater just as it was for as Willie, except I was 12 behind him.
