Flight Crew Departs to Board Discovery

The seven member flight crew of tonight's space shuttle launch departed their crew quarters minutes ago to head out to the ocean side launch pad and board Discovery to begin 13 days in space.

The crew departed at 8:09 pm EDT, and after poising for a few pictures they boarded the Astro Van for the 12 mile trip to the launch pad.

As the crew departed, Air Force meteorologist Kathy Winters broke the news to launch director Pete Nickolenko that the weather was now green across the board.
