Discovery Lifts Off

The space shuttle Discovery has successfully lifted off this morning for the first time in two and a half years and is on it's way into orbit.

Discovery (search) blasted off Tuesday morning to send seven astronauts into partly cloudy skies above Florida on the first space shuttle flight since the Columbia disaster 2 1/2 years ago.

The shuttle lifted off from the launch pad at Cape Canaveral promptly at 10:39 a.m. EDT to begin a 12-day supply and repair mission.
