what time during the mission?

barry from Bolton
Why is Discovery being launched from pad 39b instead of 39a?

Will there be an amateur radio operator onboard?

John from San Pedro,CA
Do we now have a contingency rescue plan implemented from earth to life 
boat the shuttle crew back in case of a damaged spacecraft?

What fundamental lessons have been learned from the processing 
activities undertaken since the shuttle's first flight in 1981 that can 
be applied to the next generation of reusable spacecraft?

Thomas from Jacksonville,FL
After the safe launch and return of STS-114, will NASA resume a somewhat 
more normal launch schedule?

Thomas from Jacksonville,FL

Where is the shuttle scheduled to land?

John from Allentown
Is it feasible to have a drone on board the shuttle to test repair tiles 
that could be send back to earth to see if it is successful?
