There is a good chance that it won't, but there is also a chance the shuttle could crash. The one certainty is that the shuttle fleet should be retired.

Of course, a third possibility would be that, upon examination and consideration, Discovery is deemed unsafe to fly and the crew is directed to hang out at the ISS until sufficient Soyuz modules can be launched to return them to Earth.
I know, it's nowhere near as dramatic as a "will they or won't they burn up" re-entry, and it would spell the end of future Shuttle flights as assuredly as a flaming crash, but it is a logical alternative.
Especially if NASA is finally truly concerned about safety.

Remote viewer Ed Dames was briefly interviewed by George Noory on Coast to Coast the other night. Dames claims to be about 80% accurate on his remote viewing on future event.
Dames says Discovery will have trouble on re-entry from its present mission. Hopefully Ed Dames is wrong this time..

It's just that NASA hasn't been proving itself very well since the late 90's. They have been screwing up on very minor things that end up causing very large problems (ex. One team measures in metric the other in Feet.).
