Format: Paperback
I used to work on Space Shuttle Discovery (OV-103) and actually named my RV after Discovery calling her RV-103. I was quite excited to see the book come out, but puzzled as to why it was published when Discovery has yet to fly her 39th and final mission. I understand there will be a flood of shuttle related books coming out as the program ends this year, but I wish the author had waited until after the last flight before publishing so he could include all the missions and a summary of her contributions.

I consider this product to be excellent, but perhaps that is because the author asked and used a stitch I made of the ISS and Discovery in the book, That being said, grab a copy and enjoy it under Discovery at the Udvar-Hazy center to appreciate how hard this majestic craft is.

As a huge Shuttle geek, I had to have this book. It is full of wonderful and detailed information about all of Discovery's missions, including information that was not broadcast during the missions. Another book that I didn't want to put down! If you love the space shuttle, this book is a must have!
