Discovery Returns to Earth Tomorrow

Well it’s been a truly great mission. I’ll show some of the mission photos below. Discovery’s never looked so beautiful! A few photos of the magnificent ISS as she leave it too.

I tried to find Discovery’s ISS fly around footage, but can’t find it. If anyone can direct me, I’ll drop the video in. Eitherway here’s a superb video on what Discovery has done this mission. Complete the assembly of the International Space Station!

Meanwhile, the landing. It’s tomorrow. She ignites for the deorbit burn at 1552 GMT tomorrow, hits the top of the atmosphere at 1625 GMT and lands on runway 15 at the KSC at 1657 GMT. Then that’ll be it. She’ll spend the rest of her life in a museum. What a beauty though. The landing tomorrow will be truly beautiful! :)
