FLORIDA (BNS): NASA is all set to launch the last scheduled flight of Space shuttle Discovery on November 1st.

Discovery’s 39th – and final mission- will take place at 8:00 pm (GMT) from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The 11-day mission to the International Space Station will begin from next Monday.

According to the space agency, the countdown is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm (GMT) Friday, about a day after the six astronauts of Discovery arrive at Kennedy.

"We're in great shape out at the pad," Launch Director Mike Leinbach said in a NASA release.

The shuttle will also bring Robonaut 2, the first human-like robot in space, and a permanent addition to the orbiting space station, as well as spare parts.
