Shuttle Discovery’s final flight today

The space shuttle Discovery is on the pad right now, awaiting its launch at 3:50PM Central time. Discovery’s flight has been delayed several times, most recently due to cracks in the massive external fuel tank. The cracks were repaired and strengthened, and the tank has been fueled and is holding pressure, so it looks like it was the right decision. We’ll be updating this blog throughout the preparations for launch.
