I am sure that this may be a little of topic but I just really wanted to send a message to all of the team who are getting ready for the return to flight. Well done. You are all doing an amazing job. If only all other organisations and businesses put as much hard work and care so much for their profession as you do. You are all a credit. It may seem that the last two years have been very long and arduous but it will all be worth it when Discovery lands with a mission well done. It may seem sometimes I am sure with all the long nights and stress and setbacks that no one cares. We at colectspace care. Good luck everyone I am sure you will make NASA proud.

This was sent to all JSC employees and contractors today:
Return to Flight Message from the STS-114 Commander

In just a few weeks, Discovery is scheduled to launch from the Kennedy Space Center. This is an important event in all our lives, not just the seven people who will fly aboard Discovery, but also the thousands of you whose work is making it possible for us to return the Shuttle fleet to space safely.

The past two years have challenged all of us to look closely at the work we do and ask 'how can I do this better?' For me personally, these challenges have brought renewed strength and commitment -- to my family, friends and coworkers, and to making sure I do the best possible job I can as Commander of this mission. I believe we are all stronger for having met these challenges, and that collective strength is allowing us to return to flight safely, complete the International Space Station, and move forward with the Vision for Space Exploration.

When Discovery lifts off the launch pad, my entire crew knows that we will carry your hearts and dreams with us. Thank you for your creativity, your dedication and your commitment.

Eileen Collins
Commander, STS-114
