Kepler and STS-119 Updates

Kepler launched successfully aboard its Delta II launch vehicle Friday night. The blast off was on time, and no glitches or delays were reported. Nice for a NASA success after the failure of the launch of their global warming satellite earlier this month.

Shuttle Discovery awaits launch on its pad for take-off scheduled March 11. This will be a night launch, at 9:20 p.m. EST. The astronauts arrived at the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday and preparations are going forward on schedule.
