“”Discovery”” Heads for Space Station

Space shuttle “Discovery´´ is heading for the international space station. The shuttle is on a mission to
replace the station´s space-weary crew.

To NASA´s relief, the temperature at Florida´s Kennedy Space Center stayed in the mid to high 40s during
the final few hours of the countdown, not nearly cold enough for ice to form on the shuttle´s external fuel tank.
