Space shuttle Discovery is back on Earth from its final voyage.
The world's most flown spaceship landed at NASA's Florida spaceport a few minutes before noon Wednesday. The space center was packed with workers, journalists and even some schoolchildren eager to see history in the making.
Discovery will now be retired and, several months from now, head to the Smithsonian Institution. It's the first of NASA's three surviving shuttles to be decommissioned.
It ended its flying career with 148 million miles and 365 days spent in space.
Two shuttle flights remain, by Endeavour, then Atlantis.
Discovery and its six astronauts spent more than a week at the International Space Station.
