Harbaugh. After a weather briefing, the astronauts will don their launch and entry suits and depart for Launch Pad 39A, where the Space Shuttle Discovery awaits liftoff during a 65-minute launch window which opens at about 3:55 a.m. EST, February 11. The exact opening of the launch window will be announced a few hours before launch based on the final computation of the location of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). STS-82 will be the second mission to service the HST which was deployed in 1990. (Photo Release Date: 02/10/97 )
