Space Shuttle Discovery Takes Off on Final Voyage to D.C.: VIDEO


NASA's Space Shuttle Discovery took off on the back of a 747 from the Kennedy Space Center bound for Washington D.C. this morning, where it will live in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. After taking off, the Shuttle made a low pass up the Florida coast where people were gathered on beaches to watch it go by.

The Shuttle will also make a low flyover of D.C. when it arrives and should be visible between 10 and 11 am this morning.
