    The shuttle has rolled to a stop, officially concluding the STS-133 mission. After 27 years of service during which it racked up exactly one cumulative year in space and an odometer reading of more than 148 million miles, space shuttle Discovery's distinguished career has flown into history books.

    "And to the ship that has led the way time and time again, we say farewell, Discovery," said NASA Commentator Josh Byerly.

    "And Houston, Discovery. For the final time, wheelstop," Commander Lindsey said when the orbiter stopped on the runway. He also thanked the Kennedy team for giving the crew a "terrific vehicle for a final flight."
