Discovery was the first of the three orbiters to be transitioned to their new museum home. Arriving in April of 2012 at the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia, Discovery is now surrounded with relics of human achievement as she becomes a relic herself, inspiring the over a million annual visitors to repeat the greatness of the 30-plus-year Shuttle Program in future US manned spaceflight endeavors.
