DISCOVERY ON LAUNCH PAD FOR GLENN'S RETURN TO ORBIT

NASA moved space shuttle Discovery to the launch pad Monday in preparation for John Glenn's much anticipated return to orbit.

Discovery is scheduled to blast off Oct. 29 on a nine-day science mission that will feature medical experiments conducted by Glenn. Glenn, 77, was the first American to orbit the Earth when he rocketed away 36 years ago.
