The U.S. space shuttle Discovery has landed safely at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Discovery glided down through a cloudy sky to a smooth landing, as relatives of the astronauts and NASA staff members cheered.
Discovery and its six astronauts delivered supplies, equipment and a new crew member to the International Space Station. Crew members took three spacewalks to repair space station equipment.
The successful 13 day mission boosts the U.S. space agency NASA's hopes that it has fully recovered from the 2003 Colombia disaster. The spacecraft Colombia disintegrated over Texas during its return to Earth, killing all seven astronauts
NASA plans to fly 16 shuttle missions to finish the International Space Station. Its next flight is scheduled for launch in late August.
