I'm glad that the shuttle landed o.k. and everybody came back in one piece. That vehicle is really starting to remind me of the old 1973 Opel GT that I drove back and forth to college. :S

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.

Amazingly little damage to the tiles that were of concern before reentry. Attached is a side by side of the damaged tile before and after rentry. Images from a USENET post.
