Shuttle Discovery Returns on Piggyback

Posted August. 23, 2005 03:28,   


The U.S. space shuttle Discovery arrived at its home port, Kennedy Space Center in Florida, on August 21. Discovery landed at Edwards Air Force Base in California on August 9 after completing its shuttle mission, but due to poor weather conditions, it returned to Florida riding piggyback on a modified Boeing 747 12 days after its return to earth.
