Submission + - STS-119 Launches into Space...Finally (thefutureofthings.com)

Iddo Genuth writes: "After several delays, including twice over the past week, the space shuttle Discovery has finally been launched into space. The spacecraft took off at precisely 7:43 p.m. EDT, embarking on the STS-119 mission, which will provide the International Space Station (ISS) with the fourth and final set of solar arrays. The shuttle will also deliver to the ISS its newest crew member — Japan's Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata, who will replace flight engineer Sandra Magnus at the station."
