NASA Begins a New Mission of Discovery

A beautiful night time launch of NASA's newest space telescope occurred this evening as the Kepler spacecraft began it's four year mission to discover new worlds in nearby galaxies.

A United Launch Alliance Delta II 7925 departed Cape Canaveral Air Force Station with her NASA payload aboard on time at 10:49:57 pm EST. The complete launch profile through the first 12 minutes was all nominal.
