I've been watching CBS this

I've been watching CBS this morning, Dan Rather seems to me to be the most human of the news anchors, never afraid to let some emotion show, while not wallowing in it. The latest video shows the orbiter as a brilliant shining star, shooting across the early morning Texas sky, it's beautiful, and tragic.

I wonder how the three people on the ISS will get home, I doubt the March shuttle mission will launch on schedule, and while they've got a lot of extra supplies, it could be years before another shuttle launch, if there is ever another one. They have an escape pod vehicle, a russian capsule, but that was really only for an emergency, and of course, it's never been done before.
