The Space Shuttle Discovery made one last voyage this morning as thousands gathered to pay tribute. Strapped to the back of a modified Boeing-747 transport jet, it flew over Washington DC on its way to The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum where it will go on permanent display. Discovery retires with 39 successful missions over a 27-year career.
