Today in History: Space Shuttle Discovery

As gnomi already reported here, Discovery landed safely this morning at 8:11:22 AM EDT at Edwards Air Force Base.

The question on many people's minds is: where do we go from here? Is the shuttle fleet permanently grounded? Will there be a new spacecraft designed and built for the 21st century? Will we ever manage to colonize the solar system, and then maybe the galaxy?

But for now...welcome home, Discovery.
