Discovery (STS-133) landed.
10:24
On March 9, 2011 at 16:57 UTC American Space Shuttle Discovery (STS-133 flight) landed at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida completing its 39th and final flight.
The crew of 6 astronauts (Steven Lindsey, Eric Boe, Benjamin Drew, Michael Barratt, Stephen Bowen, Nicole Stott) spent in space 12 days, 19 hours, 03 minutes and 53 seconds.
With only two more missions left on NASA's shuttle manifest -- a flight by Endeavour in April and a final voyage by Atlantis in late June -- Discovery's landing marked the beginning of the end for the world's most complex -- and expensive to operate -- manned space vehicle.
The STS-133mission was the 39th and final flight for Discovery, which spent 365 days in space, orbited Earth 5,830 times and traveled 148,221,675 miles.
