Shuttle Launch

The Shuttle Discovery took off on Sunday, headed with its crew of seven for the International Space Station, the Star Tribune reported. The launch had been delayed for more than a month, but finally took place on Sunday evening. The Star Tribune reported the launch was the prettiest NASA had ever seen. NASA said the sunset launch was beautiful. Hydrogen tanks and launch pad repairs were part of what had delayed the launch earlier this week. Two former schoolteachers were among the crew, said the Star Tribune.
