Tuesday, Discovery, a retired space shuttle, landed at Dulles International Airport to begin its new life as a museum exhibit.
Discovery was flown all over Washington,D.C., giving the citizens something exciting to tell their families about. It was on its way to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
Crowds of people stopped what they were doing and watched the shuttle pass over. They snapped pictures while drivers slowed to observe.
While Discovery might not reach the moon, it still has a way to go before the junk yard.
