Space Shuttle Discovery 05APRIL2010 Six Twenty One AM as seen from Jacksonville Beach, FL

Space shuttle Discovery launched early Monday to deliver spare parts and science experiments to the international space station. Discovery launched at 6:21 am ET from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Discovery, with its crew of seven astronauts, is carrying supplies and science equipment for the international space station’s laboratories. The 13-day mission includes three planned spacewalks, replacing an ammonia tank assembly and retrieving a Japanese experiment from the station’s exterior. Discovery is scheduled to arrive at the space station on Wednesday, and return to Earth on April 18 at 8:35 am ET. After this mission, there are only three shuttle missions remaining before the space shuttle fleet is retired. Commander Alan Poindexter is leading the STS-131 mission. Joining Poindexter is Pilot Jim Dutton and Mission Specialists Rick Mastracchio, Clay Anderson, Dorothy Metcalf-Lindenburger, Stephanie Wilson and Naoko Yamazaki of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. Wilson is a Taconic High School graduate and former resident of Pittsfield, Mass. my hometown and High School We’re very proud of you Stephanie!

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization. STS-92 was a Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS) flown by Space Shuttle Discovery. STS-92 marked the 100th mission of the Space Shuttle. It was launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, 11 October 2000. STS-92 was an ISS assembly flight that brought the Z1 truss, Control Moment Gyros, Pressurized Mating Adapter-3 (PMA-3) (mounted on a Spacelab pallet) and two DDCU (Heat pipes) to the space station. ITS Z1 is an early exterior framework to allow the first US solar arrays on flight 4A to be temporarily installed on Unity for early power. The Ku-band communication system supports early science capability and US television on 6A. The CMGs (Control Moment Gyros) weigh about 27 kilograms (60 lb) and provide non-propulsive (electrically powered) attitude control

STS-128 Discovery Blast Off celebrating Silver Anniversary (HD)

August 28, 2009 – Kennedy Space Center. Space shuttle Discovery, with its seven-member crew, launched at 11:59 pm EDT Friday from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The shuttle will deliver supplies, equipment and a new crew member to the International Space Station. Inside the shuttle’s cargo bay is the Leonardo Multi-Purpose Logistics Module, a pressurized “moving van” that will be temporarily installed to the station. The module will deliver storage racks; materials and fluids science racks; a freezer to store research samples; a new sleeping compartment; an air purification system; and a treadmill named after comedian Stephen Colbert. The name “Colbert” received the most entries in NASA’s online poll to name the station’s Node 3. NASA named the node Tranquility. Shortly before liftoff, Commander Rick Sturckow said, “Thanks to everyone who helped prepare for this mission. Lets go step up the science on the International Space Station!” The 13-day flight will include three spacewalks to replace experiments outside the European Space Agency’s Columbus laboratory, install a new ammonia storage tank and return the used one. Ammonia is needed to move excess heat from inside the station to the radiators located outside. Sturckow is joined on the STS-128 mission by Pilot Kevin Ford, Mission Specialists Pat Forrester, Jose Hernandez, Danny Olivas and European Space Agency astronaut Christer Fuglesang. NASA astronaut Nicole Stott will fly to the complex aboard Discovery to
