Smithsonian sets space shuttle arrival to 'Welcome Discovery' to DC
[i]NASA's space shuttle Discovery is set to land in Washington, DC this April, where the now retired fleet leader — the world's most flown spacecraft — will be welcomed by the Smithsonian Institution during a four-day public festival, museum officials said on Tuesday (Feb. 28).
"When NASA transfers Discovery to the National Air and Space Museum, the American people will gain a major icon of space history and an educational treasure to be valued now and for years to come," museum director Gen. J.R. "Jack" Dailey said in a press statement. "We invite the public to help us welcome Discovery to the collection of the Smithsonian Institution."[/i]
