During a postlaunch news conference at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the 6:21 a.m. EDT liftoff of space shuttle Discovery was hailed as a great success.

Calling the launch, “a great start to a great mission,” Bill Gerstenmaier, associate administrator for Space Operations, said the successful liftoff was a tribute to the team at Kennedy that got the vehicle ready to fly.

De Discovery is op het moment de oudste van de 3 space shuttles, en gaat dit jaar na zo’n 25 jaar dienst met ” pensioen “. Ook de andere 2 space shuttles ( Atlantis en Endeavour ) gaan dit jaar met ” pensioen “.
