SM3A: Discovery Liftoff
After months of delays because of wiring defects, an engine swap and replacement of a crushed liquid hydrogen line, NASA launched Discovery into space on Hubble Servicing Mission 3A in December 1999.
The clear night at the lakeside created a fantastic setting for the liftoff of the Space Shuttle Discovery.
