FILE - In this Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2009 file photo, Space shuttle Discovery moves along it's path at sunrise to pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Cananveral, Fla. The space shuttle was sold to America as cheap, safe and reliable. It was none of those. It cost tens of billions of dollars, ended the lives of 14 astronauts and managed to make fewer half the flights promised. Yet despite all that, there were monumental achievements that in the beginning were unforeseen: major scientific advances, stunning photos of the cosmos, a high-flying vehicle of diplomacy that helped bring Cold War enemies closer, and something to brag about.
