About Smithsonian Space Shuttle Discovery

The first human-carrying spacecraft to complete the International Space Station construction mission.

Launched on April 24, 1998, Discovery was the first of NASA's three Space Shuttle Orbiters. It was the third overall shuttle built. It made its maiden flight on August 30, 1984, carrying out a successful five-day mission to deploy communications satellites at 1/3 Earth orbit before landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Its 25th and final mission ended on March 9, 2011, with a landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida after circling the Earth 36 times.

Wiki Smithsonian Space Shuttle Discovery

Space Shuttle Discovery (Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-103) is one of the orbiters from NASA's Space Shuttle program and the third of five fully operational orbiters to be built.[2] Its first mission, STS-41-D, flew from August 30 to September 5, 1984. Over 27 years of service it launched and landed 39 times, aggregating more spaceflights than any other spacecraft to date. The Space Shuttle launch vehicle has three main components: the Space Shuttle orbiter, a single-use central fuel tank, and two reusable solid rocket boosters. Nearly 25,000 heat-resistant tiles cover the orbiter to protect it from high temperatures on re-entry.[3]

Discovery became the third operational orbiter to enter service, preceded by Columbia and Challenger.[4] It embarked on its final mission, STS-133, on February 24, 2011, and touched down for the last time at Kennedy Space Center on March 9,[5] having spent a cumulative total of nearly a full year in space. Discovery performed both research and International Space Station (ISS) assembly missions, and also carried the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit.
