Discovery Odds

Discovery will be (barring anything really unusual) lifting off this morning. The odds from what I hear are 1 in 100. For comparison, the chances of an airline disaster are about 1 in 2,000,000.

But if invited to go, I'd most certainly go. Who wouldn't? Exploration isn't a safe thing. It's about going into the unknown, taking risks, and giving us information to build on for tomorrow.

Take our people safely to the skies, Discovery. And bring them home just as safely.
