A rare sight: The Shuttle Discovery, 12 stories tall and 100 tons strong, hangs from the crane inside the Vehicle Assembly Building, ready to be lifted and attached to the 18-story booster stack that will take it into space on STS-131, the orbiter's next-to-last mission.

Next to last?! God! Where are we going? First Concorde and Tu144 have been retired and now Space Shuttle. So I have to tell my grand children that ONCE we could fly at mach 2 and ONCE we had space shuttle but now we are at the same point as we were in 50s. (Ali Aminzadeh)

It is a shame that these beautiful birds are soon going to be grounded. Thanks NASA for keeping the USA in the forefront.
