Just one minute before midnight EDT, Friday, August 28,
the Space Shuttle Discovery began a
long arc into a cloudy sky.
Following the launch, a bright and remarkably colorful trail
was captured in
time exposure from the Banana River
Viewing Site, looking east toward pad 39A at the
Kennedy Space Center.
On STS-128, Discovery docked with the
International Space Station Sunday evening.
The 13-day mission will exchange space station
crew members and deliver more than 7 tons of supplies
Of course, the equipment includes the Combined Operational
Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill
