Successful launch!

Following the frustrating flight cancellations over the weekend, Discovery blasts off on time for mission STS-121.

Is there a better way for the americans to celebrate the 4th July?!

There have been some early reports that some debris fell off the external tank some time into the launch but Nasa have stated that they feel that, although it is rather early to say, the debris was not shed at a critical time within the launch but that there will be a full analysis of all the video footage over the next few days.
