Space Shuttle Discovery Launched

By Meera Dolasia on October 23, 2007

Space shuttle Discovery blasted off the launch pad at Cape Canaveral on October 24th 2007, at 11.38 in the morning. 

This is the shuttle's 23rd flight to the International Space Station. The crew of seven astronauts on board will install a new module, which in turn, will allow the addition of new European and Japanese space laboratories on upcoming missions.
