Go Discovery!

Space shuttle Discovery blasted off to a picture perfect launch this afternoon, carrying the large Japanese research laboratory named Kibo to the International Space Station. Among the seven astronaut crew is Minnesota native (and runner) Karen Nyberg. Karen will be the first astronaut to operate 3 different robotic arms during a single space flight.

It's difficult to comprehend travelling at 17,500 miles per hour!

Aren't they also bringing up a part for a toilet? Wouldn't that qualify as the most expensive plumbing house call ever?
