Discovery Lands, Now on to a Museum
Space shuttle Discovery touched down for the last time Wednesday, wrapping up another chapter of U.S. space travel. NASA's oldest and most-flown spacecraft ends its career with 148 million miles and 365 days spent in space.
STS-133 Commander Steve Lindsey, pilot Eric Boe, and mission specialists Mike Barratt, Al Drew, Steve Bowen and Nicole Stott take questions from the media following their safe return to NASA's Kennedy Space Center earlier in the day aboard space shuttle Discovery.
