Submission + - Discovery lands in Florida

duh P3rf3ss3r writes: As reported by the BBC, the space shuttle Discovery safely landed at Kennedy Space Centre in Florida at 2232 GMT. Discovery's 13 day mission is being called a success after astronauts undertook four space walks to install new wiring and to do battle with a recalcitrant solar panel. The next scheduled flight is the Atlantis shuttle in March.

A video chronicle of the mission, including the landing, is available at NASA's video gallery.

The goal of science is to build better mousetraps. The goal of nature is to build better mice.
