Last Landing of Shuttle Discovery

Last Landing of Shuttle Discovery
As the wheels of Space Shuttle Discovery touched the ground, it marked the end of an era for the aging spacecraft. Having orbited our Earth countless times, it will now find itself a piece of historic memorabilia in the hands of a collector.

Not all is lost there are still two more shuttle launches one for each of the two remaining shuttles.I'm sure that after all is done that the three orbiters will take honorable places in history of aviation in museums.
