Missed Discovery Landing Because I Was Dreaming of Mars

I had to watch Space Shuttle Discovery’s landing online and after the fact, because I was watching Mars Rising, a program about a hypothetical future mission to Mars narrated by William Shatner, on the Science Channel. I am glad that Discovery’s final crew made it home safely, but I hope that we can begin setting our sites on bigger game in the solar system with a public space program rather than something privatized.
