Shuttle Lands

By  | 

The crew of The Space Shuttle Discovery is safely back on Earth.
The shuttle had a picture perfect landing yesterday at Kennedy Space Center.
After a 13-day mission, discovery started its descent from orbit just after 8:00 a.m. eastern time and landed at 9:14 a.m.
NASA did take precautions, a last-minute buildup of clouds prompted NASA to switch the shuttle's landing direction.
The smooth landing capped NASA's second shuttle mission since the 2003 Columbia disaster.
Now, Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to blast off as early as next month.
