The Discovery could be ready for launch at Cape Canaveral as early as next week, but a high-priority military rocket liftoff could bump the shuttle flight at least two days, officials said. A decision on a shuttle launch date will be made Friday at the conclusion of a flight readiness review. On Monday, Thomas Utsman, deputy director of the Kennedy Space Center, said the center was ready for the Discovery flight, but his statement did not give a launch date. Other officials said the launch target date of March 9 has not changed.
