The main landing gear of the Space Shuttle Discovery touches down on the KSC landing facility. Onboard are six of the seven astronauts who nearly two weeks earlier had lifted off from the nearby launch complex--astronauts Steven W. Lindsey, Piers J. Sellers, Mark E. Kelly, Michael E. Fossum, Stephanie D. Wilson and Lisa M. Nowak. European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Reiter remained aboard the International Space Station.
