Space shuttle Discovery was moved the evening of January 31, from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida for its STS-133 mission. It arrived at the pad early in the morning of January, 31. The move is referred to as a "rollout." The STS-133 mission to the International Space Station is the final scheduled flight for Discovery before it is retired.


Discovery will carry the Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) packed with supplies and critical spare parts, as well as the first human-like robot in space, Robonaut 2, to the station. Discovery is targeted to launch February 24.
