This is how Discovery approached and landed safely on Runway 15 at the Kennedy Space Center, after successfully completing mission STS-133. Everyone loves the Space Shuttle launches, but the landings are quite exciting too—and terrifying, after the Columbia disaster.

At 11:57 a.m. EST, space shuttle Discovery landed for the final time at NASA's Kennedy Space Center after 202 orbits around Earth and a journey of 5,304,140 miles on STS-133.

I love the view with the HUD.
