The final voyage of Space Shuttle Discovery

Space Shuttle Discovery blasts off today to the International Space Station to deliver the Pressurized Multipurpose Module, ExPRESS Logistics Carrier-4 and Robonaut2. You can watch coverage of the launch, live, check out where to see the Discovery after it launches, and learn more about the mission online. This mission marks the last of the Discovery, as the space shuttle program comes to a close over the next few months. NASA has offered Discovery to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum for public display and preservation as part of the national collection after the orbiter has been retired. We wish the astronauts the best of luck on this mission, and look forward to their successful return to Earth!
