Bears in Space II

February 24, 2011

The Blue-eyed Bear is suited up and ready to go aboard Discovery!

All paws on deck! The Blue-eyed Bear is ready to go to space as part of NASA’s “Faces in Space” program. After a long delay Mission STS133 will fly tomorrow Feb 24, 2011 aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. Lift off is from pad 39A at 4:50 est. This is to be the last flight of the intrepid ship Discovery. The mission is to deliver “Leonardo” a space closet to the International Space Station as well as the long awaited  robotic astronaut. And just maybe the crew will test out whether bears might do a better job in space then any space robot! Godspeed Discovery and Crew, Godspeed Blue-eyed Bear!
