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.

Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
