KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- Mission managers say all systems are go for the final launch of Space Shuttle Discovery.

The launch is scheduled for 4:50 p.m. Thursday and it will be the final mission for Discovery. It's an 11-day mission to the International Space Station with supplies and a human-like robot.

There is a 20 percent chance of stormy weather that could delay the launch.

Shuttle Discovery has an impressive resume, returning John Glenn to space at 77 years old, and being the first shuttle back into space after the Challenger and Columbia explosions.

First Coast News will have reports from the Cape leading up to the launch.
