Welcome Home, Discovery!

After a one-day weather delay, Space Shuttle Discovery, STS-131, landed at Kennedy Space Center at 9:09 this morning. The entry path was from the northwest, and I didn't hear any sonic booms (darn it). The successful 15 day, 6.2 million mile mission delivered over 7 tons of equipment to the International Space Station.

Yeah! Space is our final frontier (even if shuttle trips are nearing an end).
