Submission + - Shuttle Discovery Docks With Space Station (foxnews.com)

Velcroman1 writes: The space shuttle Discovery has docked with the International Space Station for the final time at 2:15 p.m. EST, where it will make a last delivery to the orbiting space lab — before parking ultimately at a museum.

With Discovery's presence, the ISS becomes a truly "international" space station. This is the first time spacecraft from the United States, Russia, Europe and Japan have all docked simultaneously, NASA said. The station also hosts the Leonardo Multipurpose Module built by the Italian Space Agency and recently gained Dextre, the Canadian Space Agency’s robotic handyman.
