Space Shuttle Discovery Lands in California

"Space Shuttle Discovery touched down this morning at Edwards Air Force Base in California to successfully conclude NASA's Return to Flight Mission. Discovery spent two weeks in space, where the crew demonstrated new methods to inspect and repair the Shuttle in orbit. The crew also delivered supplies, outfitted and performed maintenance on the International Space Station. A number of these tasks were conducted during three spacewalks."

"It was probably one of the most successful missions that [the shuttle progam] has ever flown," says Keith Cowing of the watchdog website Nasawatch.com. "I wouldn't be surprised if NASA tries to fly in the fall."
