'Discovery' Safely In Space

The space shuttle Discovery is on its 39th and final mission.  The shuttle and its six-member crew are chasing down the International Space Station. 

Several pieces of foam insulation broke off the external fuel tank four minutes into the flight, but NASA says that shouldn't pose any safety concerns.  Following it's 11-day mission, Discovery will be retired and sent to a museum.
