NASA Ready To Launch Space Shuttle Discovery

Mission STS-124 is having the final touches put to it at the moment, let's just hope they haven't forgotten the supplies necessary to fix the toilet on the International Space Station. I would say let's cross our fingers, but the crew of the space station are more likely crossing their legs.

NASA are fuelling Discovery ready for a late afternoon launch at the Kennedy Space Centre, with good weather and no hiccups there should be no problems. Let's hope it stays that way.
