Discovery returns to Florida

The Space Shuttle Discovery has made its final journey home to Florida. It flew out of Edwards Airforce base in California on the back of a Boeing 747 at 08:30 local time [15:30 GMT]. There will be two fuel stops, at Oklahoma and Louisiana, before arriving at Kennedy Space Centre on Saturday. All shuttle missions are on hold until at least 2006 as NASA attempt to determine the problems associated with shedding foam from the space shuttle's external fuel tank. [CNN]
