*Launch Rehearsal Up Next
8 OCTOBER 2007
The seven STS-120 astronauts arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in 
Florida on Sunday evening in their T-38 training jets, in advance of 
next week's launch dress rehearsal activities. During the week, the 
astronauts and ground crews are scheduled to participate in various 
simulated countdown activities and training exercises.

Over the past week, space shuttle Discovery rolled out from the Vehicle 
Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A, where the payload for its mission 
was installed in the shuttle's cargo bay. The payload includes the 
Italian-built U.S. Harmony module, which will be delivered to the 
International Space Station.

Launch of Discovery is targeted for Oct. 23. STS-120 astronauts arrive 
at Kennedy Space Center. Discovery’s seven astronauts talk to media 
shortly after their arrival at Kennedy’s Shuttle Landing Facility. Image
