 How NASA'S Discovery opened the Gateway for Modern Space Exploration

When you look at this gigantic space Vehicle, you will begin to imagine the future of humanity into the deep space.

The space shuttle Discovery was rolled out for the first time at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This historic moment took place in November 1983.

At that time, NASA was already prepared to begin a new level of space exploration.

On August 30, 1984, the Space shuttle Discovery was sent into space for it's first mission which was named 41-D. 

During this mission, Discovery delivered three satellites into space.

The success of this mission served as a motivation to every space lover across the globe.

The Space shuttle Discovery served NASA from 1984 to 2011. During it's active season, Discovery traveled to space for 39 different space missions and spend up to 365 days in space.

This great milestone made it the longest serving Spaceshuttle in history.

The space Shuttle Discovery retired on March 9th, 2011 and it is currently resting in the

Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, which is an annex of the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum.

You can visit this space museum to watch the historic space shuttle that opened the door of future space missions.
