Space shuttle Discovery back home from last mission

Posted:

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (WKOW) -- Space shuttle Discovery landed at the NASA space station for a last time.

It touched down in Florida just before 11 a.m. CST.

Considered the world's most-traveled spaceship, it has flown 39 missions over nearly 27 years. It's now being retired and will eventually go on display at the Smithsonian Institution.

Two more missions remain before the shuttle program wraps up this summer. Shuttle Endeavour will fly in April, followed by Atlantis in June.
