Discovery Returns From Two Week Mission

The space shuttle Discovery is back home after a 15-day mission to the International Space Station.

During the visit, the seven shuttle astronauts and three residents of the space station teamed up to save a mangled solar wing.

It was considered one of the most difficult and dangerous repairs ever attempted in orbit.

As the shuttle rolled to a stop in Florida, Mission Control radioed, "Congratulations on a tremendous mission and great landing."

Discovery's commander responded with, "It's nice to be back in Florida."
