Discovery shuttle makes historic last touchdown

From the BBC:

The oldest of America's space shuttles, Discovery, has brought its remarkable 27-year career to an end.

The orbiter has just landed at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida after a 12-day - and final - mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

Discovery is destined now to go to a museum. Nasa's two other reusable spaceplanes will follow it into retirement in the coming months.

The landing at Kennedy occurred just before midday, local Florida time.

On its final flight, Discovery delivered a new store room and a sophisticated humanoid robot to the ISS.
