PAO: Discovery has cleared the tower at pad 39 rolling around to the proper azimuth to place the spacecraft on a 28.5 degree inclination orbit… all three Auxiliary Power Units are operation at 100 plus percent of their rated rpm of 72,000 rpm…

PAO: Throttling down to 84 and then 65 percent… the main engines… as the spacecraft passes through the maximum point of atmospheric compression…
