Space Shuttle Discovery lands at the Smithsonian

Visitors watch as Space Shuttle Discovery approaches Enterprise in the public ceremony transferring Discovery to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Visitors watch as Space Shuttle Discovery approaches Enterprise in the public ceremony transferring Discovery to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

Almost thirty years after it was delivered to NASA, Space Shuttle Discovery was placed on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center with all the celebration due the longest-serving orbiter in the space shuttle fleet.

It's been a long goodbye since the Shuttle's final mission ended in March 2011, and NASA's Space Shuttle program formally ended on August 31, 2011. Watch the video above to see the dedication ceremony for Shuttle Discovery.
