Moments ago, Space Shuttle Discovery launched for its last mission. We were not there to witness the launch in person. We watched on NASA-TV. The shuttle has now traveled far enough that it cannot return to KSC, should something go awry. “All systems are continuing to operate as expected.” Good luck to Discovery‘s crew.
