Discovery crew honors Columbia crew

The commander of Discovery says NASA's looked at everything possible on the space shuttle to make sure it will make a safe return to Earth next week.

Eileen Collins' comments came shortly before the Discovery crew paid tribute to the crew of Columbia who died in the 2003 accident.

Each astronaut aboard the space shuttle and space station offered thoughts about the crew of Columbia and others who died in the quest for space.

Steve Robinson says aircraft and spacecraft "have shrunk the world in a way that early generations of explorers could never have imagined."
