Shuttle Launch

This was the first shuttle launch after a summer of embarrassment for NASA. The shuttle Discovery had put the nearsighted Hubble Space Telescope in orbit. NASA also battled a series of fuel and hydraulic leaks on both Atlantis and Columbia that prevented scheduled launches. This flight went off without a single problem. This aired on WBZS-AM.
