Image description: This morning the Space Shuttle Discovery took a final flight around Washington, D.C. perched on top of a 747 jet before being transferred to its final resting place in the National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia.

The remaining space shuttles will be transferred to various museums and visitors centers throughout the country.
