NASA Sets April 5 Launch Date for Shuttle Discovery

Space Shuttle

The space shuttle Discovery is set to launch April 5 on one of NASA's few remaining shuttle flights to the International Space Station, mission managers announced Friday after settling concerns over potential valve leaks.

Discovery is slated to blast off from a seaside launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 6:21 a.m. EDT (1021 GMT) on Easter Monday. It is one of NASA's final four shuttle missions before the fleet is retired later this year.
