A 9-year-old boy from California is in Florida this week hoping to hear and feel Discovery's final launch. Robert Smith may have lost his vision to a tumor, but that hasn't diminished his love for space or NASA. He hopes to experience this historic event with his other senses.
Due to the delays -- the launch was originally scheduled for Monday -- Robert has spent the week at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, where he has had a chance to experience NASA robots and other KSC attractions along with other blind people.
