Discovery is back

The Space Shuttle Discovery landed safety at the Kennedy Space Center after a 13-day mission. The shuttle, with a complement of six crews, carried supplies to the International Space Station and perform some maintenance and experiments during the mission.

After the successful mission NASA scheduled 16 shuttle flights up to 2010, of which the shuttles will then be retired. The next shuttle flight will be on August 28, this time with Atlantis. Discovery will also fly again in December.
