I wanted to write about the launch of the Shuttle Discovery and STS-116, but weather has delayed the planned Thursday night (12/7/2006) launch until Saturday. The launch was declared scrubbed at 21:36. For the aging Discovery, this is the 33rd mission and 117th space shuttle flight. The STS-116 mission is scheduled for 12-days and the crew will continue construction on the International Space Station. The highpower of the mission will be additional space walks to rewire and add a segment to its integrated truss structure. Cross your fingers for better weather on Saturday.
