Also, as I write this the Shuttle is a few hundred meters from the ISS, and has flipped over so that astronauts aboard the station can take high-resolution pictures of Discovery's heat shield. They're looking for damaged tiles. After that, the Shuttle will dock with the station at 17:12 Eastern time, and the fun begins: an exchange of astronauts, and the installation of the last solar panel needed to bring ISS to full power.
