EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. - The space shuttle Discovery and its seven astronauts took a cross-country detour and landed safely in California on Friday after stormy weather kept them from returning home to Florida for the second day in a row.
Discovery swooped through the sky and touched down at Edwards Air Force Base an hour before sunset, ending its delivery trip to the international space station.
?Welcome home, Discovery,? Mission Control radioed. ?Congratulations on an extremely successful mission
