STS-116 Is Go

NASA Gives 'Go' For Space Shuttle Discovery Launch

"NASA senior managers today unanimously recommended launching the Space Shuttle Discovery on December 7. Commander Mark Polansky and his six crewmates are scheduled to lift off at 9:35 p.m. EST on the STS-116 mission, one of the most challenging flights to continue building the International Space Station. During the 12-day mission and three spacewalks, the crew will work to install a new segment of the station's girder-like truss and activate the station's permanent, complex power and cooling systems."
