Last Thursday, February 24th, the Space Shuttle Discovery launched into space for the very last time, signaling the start of the end for the Space Shuttle program at NASA. Discovery has been in service for the last 26 or so years and has flown 38 times to space. Wikipedia has a great section detailing each of the tribute and mission insignias for the Space Shuttle Discovery.

In Focus has a bunch of images from Discovery missions past and so does The Frame.

And here’s the video you probably wanted to see in this post. Look at that ship go!
