finally: new news ;)

Finally, NASA has released some news item. On the space shuttle home page, they state:

On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the payload for mission STS-120 has been installed in space station Discovery's cargo bay. The payload includes the Italian-built U.S. Harmony module, which will be delivered to the International Space Station during the mission. The module will serve as the future connecting point between the U.S. Destiny lab, the European Space Agency's Columbus module and the Japanese Kibo module.

Hearing that is a relief for me. Since Sunday, there was no real news available. Of course, some forums had this and that note, but nothing official at all from the progress at Kennedy Space Center. Now, we know things look good.

Please note that there is not a single word about a schedule slip, so we seem to be still on time.
