Shuttle mission ongoing

The shuttle Discovery launched successfully early Sunday morning UK time. It is now on its way to the International Space Station and will dock later this evening.

Once there its mission will be to perform some tricky rewiring of the ISS.

Unfortunately there are only a couple of opportunities to see the ISS and Shuttle from Cockermouth over the couple of weeks.

  1. By "its mission" I mean the astronauts on board, not the shuttle itself :-)
