Discovery Shuttle landing successful says NASA Space Center
The Discovery shuttle landing has been successful says NASA Space Center.
'Welcome Home Discovery' says NASA space Center seconds after the shuttle has safely landed in Florida.
Discovery landed at NASA's Florida spaceport a short while ago, ending a 13-day mission that left the international space station with all its solar wings.
The space station is now able to produce enough electricity to support a larger crew and conduct more research.
NASA's Discovery Shuttle has fired its braking rockets and is beginning its descent.
The U.S. space shuttle Discovery has fired it's braking rockets and is beginning it's descent.

Previous bad weather delayed the landing.
Bad weather has delayed NASA's Discovery Shuttle landing; the weather is just too severe at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
“We think things have a good chance of looking better for our second opportunity today,'' Mission Control radioed to Discovery. The second chance for landing will be the last opportunity Saturday for Discovery. If bad weather persists, touchdown will be delayed another day. Sunday’s weather looks worse than today.
NASA decided to skip its first opportunity to bring Discovery back to Earth at 1:39 p.m. EDT (1739 GMT). The U.S. space agency has one more chance to land the shuttle on Saturday, at 3:14 p.m. EDT (1914 GMT)
