"Discovery" returns to Earth after the STS-119 mission to the ISS. Discovery’s main landing gear touched down at 15:13:17 EDT, followed by the nose gear at 15:13:40 EDT. The shuttle’s wheels stopped at 15:14:45 EDT, bringing the mission’s elapsed time to 12 days, 19 hours, 29 minutes, 33 seconds. Discovery traveled 5,304,140 miles during its journey. This sight and sound of the two sonic booms that herald the immenient arrival of the orbiter will soon be history. She may have as little as 2 more flights!

I remember a few years ago I was down at the Kennedy Space Center taking the tour (very much worth it!) and I was lucky enough to see Atlantis on the pad being prepared for launch. AMAZING! It is HUGE!! I love anything that has to do with aircraft and spacecraft. This is a great shot! I have also been at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Mission Control!!
