After analysis of available data, the Mission Management Team has given a “go” for a Tuesday launch of Space Shuttle Discovery to the International Space Station.

Tis will be the first ever Independence Day launch for the shuttle, and it is though a lot of people will be watching it.

Two countdowns at the weekend had to be cancelled because of stormy weather around the space centre, but Nasa are hopping for a smooth lift-off from the Kennedy Space Center at 1438 EDT (1838 GMT) this afternoon.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
