I went to work yesterday expecting it to be the worst Monday ever. Everyone was certainly subdued, but it soon became apparent that we were all filled with The Mission.

The spaceflight community (which to my continued surprise and amusement includes me) always has missions, a related group of clear goals. Now we have one goal; a single purpose. All of the community’s considerable technical skill will focus on what happened during STS-107.

It wasn’t bad for a Monday.

Labor omina vincit.
