Discovery Back in Florida

The space shuttle Discovery is finally back in Florida at the Kennedy Space Center, completing its mission to the International Space Station.  Due to poor weather conditions, the shuttle landed in California on Edwards Air Force Base.  You can see Discovery and the 747 that ferried it back to Florida in the photo below.
