Discovery To ISS


The space shuttle Discovery, lifted off today and headed to the International Space Station to stock supplies and set new precedents. For the first time, three female astronauts are involved in one mission...and it is also the last launch that will take place in darkness. There have been some spectacular night time launches in the past...but this one was, supposedly, the best ever witnessed. There are only three flights left for the shuttle fleet, and then they will be retired. Watch this morning's launch --
