Welcome home, astronauts! Space shuttle Endeavour landed safely Sunday night. The mission was a complete success.
This is a photo of space shuttle Endeavour when crews moved it back to the hanger. While it was moving back to the hanger, space shuttle Discovery rolled out to the launch pad. Discovery will launch in April.
Only four more shuttle missions remain. After the shuttles retire, space station crews will travel on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
We will all miss the shuttles. If you would like to learn more about the shuttles, NASA has a great coloring book that tells all about them. To print it, go to http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/156665main_Color_and_Learn.pdf
