The Shuttle Discovery, NASA's flagship orbiter, heads into space for the 39th and final time February 24 at 4:50pm EST. STS-133 launched into a beautifully clear late-afternoon sky, taking to the space station Leonardo, formerly one of the two flown resuable Multipurpose Logistics Modules (MPLM) that visited the ISS on seven previous shuttle missions since 2001, and now converted into a permanent storage closet for the station known as the Pressurized Multipurpose Module (PMM). This was the last US-launch
