Discovery safely back after space maintenance trip

Text size Aa Aa

The space shuttle Discovery has arrived safely back home after a textbook landing at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The shuttle has just finished a 15 day mission. It delivered a Japanese lab to the International Space Station, as well as a much-needed pump for the station’s only toilet which was out-of-order.

There had been concerns that floating debris and a bump on Discovery’s rudder might affect the landing, but they proved unfounded.
