Discovery lands safely at Kennedy

The Space Shuttle touched down safely today at 5:32 Eastern time, just 12 days 20 hours 44 minutes and 36 seconds after launch. It traveled 5,330,000 miles, which would be a lot cooler if it had ever reached more than a couple of hundred miles above the surface of the Earth.
