After Successful Flight, a Warm Texas Greeting for STS-114 Crew

HOUSTON – More than 1,000 space fans, dignitaries and NASA engineers, workers and officials greeted the seven astronauts of Discovery STS-114 mission – the first shuttle flight since the Columbia disaster – during a welcome back ceremony here at an Ellington Field hangar.

Discovery’s crew, commanded by veteran astronaut Eileen Collins[yay for girls!], welcomed the reception after 14 days in space and a busy test flight to the International Space Station (ISS) that ended in Tuesday with a successful morning landing at Dryden Flight Research Center at California’s Edwards Air Force Base.
