Discovery home

The U.S. space shuttle Discovery returned to the Kennedy Space Center Sunday aboard a specially modified Boeing 747 jet.

Television news footage showed the 747, with the shuttle on top, landing in Florida on a runway at the sprawling NASA facility, AP informs.

The shuttle took off Friday from Edwards Air Force Base in California, where it landed Aug. 9 after its first space mission since the shuttle Columbia blew up in 2003. The two aircraft stopped overnight at a military base in Louisiana.

On Thursday, NASA said there would be no more shuttle missions into space until March, 2006, at the earliest.
