CDR asking KSC about the problem, KSC says they have it under control.

Not sure what the problem is, something to do with computer screens not working in launch control.

Central Command Computer displays are not functioning, this means launch control would not be able to closely monitor details of ascent, which is very, very important.

Still no-go for launch Sad

Mission Controller just went through the ''go/no-go'' for launch (if you have seen Apollo 13, you will know how cool that is Smile)

Mission Controller: ''CDR''
CDR Steven Lidsey: ''Discovery is go!''

Everything is go apart from the Computers.

One minute till the T minus clock beings counting again. They will hold again at T minus 5 to give Eastern Range team more time to work the problem.

WOOHOOO!

SRB sep, negative return (too high and too fast to return to KSC in the event of an engine failure)

Launched looked great from work... for about 10 seconds then it disappeared behind the clouds, great timing to get that sucker up to because to the south there is a nice storm forming and making it's way north.

134 is penciled in for the 19th of April, with Endeavour. And 135 is also penciled in for the 28th of June, with Atlantis, which will be the last ever flight of the Space Shuttle Programme.

I would expect delays to mabey push everything back to later dates. STS-133 actually was supposed to Launch on the 1st of November 2010, but problems with fueling and the fuel tank caused the launch then to be delayed till now.
