KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. — The shuttle Discovery's international crew, including an Arab prince, arrived at the spaceport Friday optimistic for a Monday launch despite stormy weather expected through the weekend.

"We hope to give you a big, big flame on Monday morning," flight commander Daniel Brandenstein said.

Thick clouds and drizzling rain at Kennedy Space Center greeted Brandenstein, co-pilot John Creighton and crew mates Shannon Lucid, Steven Nagel, John Fabian, Patrick Baudry of France and Prince Sultan ibn Salman al Saud of Saudi Arabia.
