STS-114: Mission Complete

September 7, 2005
Lightning strikes in the distance as the Space Shuttle Discovery receives post-flight processing in the Mate-Demate Device (MDD), following its landing at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in California. The gantry-like MDD structure is used for servicing the shuttle orbiters in preparation for their ferry flight back to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida; including mounting the shuttle atop NASA's modified Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft.
