The picture below shows us Space shuttle Discovery mounted atop a NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft on April 17 near the U.S. Capitol. Discovery spent 365 days in space, orbited the Earth 5,830 timeas and traveled 148,221,675 miles. Discovery will be transfered to the US National Air and Space Museum.
Fascinating, isn’t it?
