Photo for the Day - August 29, 2009

Beautiful Sight!

Riding a tower of flames, Space Shuttle Discovery punches through a fabric of clouds as it roars toward space from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Liftoff from Launch Pad 39A was on time at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
The STS-128 mission is the 30th International Space Station assembly flight and the 128th space shuttle flight. The 13-day mission will deliver more than seven tons of supplies, science racks and equipment, as well as additional environmental hardware to sustain six crew members on the space station.
