    Discovery Lands Safely, all astronauts safely on Earth - 1311hrsGMT

    "Exactly as it was supposed to" Pat Ryan at mission control

    after a lot of nail biting the astronauts have returned to Earth alive proving that the the space race can continue. landing in the Edwards air force base it will require piggybacking on a boeing 747 to return it home which could take between one and two weeks when they are ready to move it

    although the fleet is grounded even the most pessemistic can assume that the job can be started again

    Discovery just made a perfect landing at 8:12 EDT... It was amazing to see that. It really was. They've made it back with firsts in the air. The damage stustained to the shuttle didn't cause too much trouble (The Foam, Tear Under Commanders Window) and the only thing that did was the bottom of the shuttle trouble! So Welcome Home!
