On May 31, 2008, Space Shuttle Discovery was launched from the Kennedy Space Center on its 35th flight, STS-124. During this mission to the International Space Station (ISS), Discovery delivered the Pressurized Module of the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM), called Kibô, and the Japanese Remote Manipulator System, a robotic arm. Discovery returned to Earth on June 14th after 217 orbits and a mission time of 13 days, 18 hours.
Discovery (OV-103), the third of NASAs fleet of reusable spacecraft, arrived at Kennedy Space Center in November 1983. It was launched on its first mission, flight 41-D, on August 30, 1984. It carried aloft three communications satellites for deployment by its astronaut crew. Discovery completed its final flight on March 9, 2011, having flown 39 successful missions, starting from STS-41-D until STS-133, in over 27 years of service.
Discovery is named for two famous British ships of exploration; one sailed by Henry Hudson in 1610-11 to search for a northwest passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and HMS Discovery, one of the ships commanded by James Cook during his third voyage in 1776–1779 during which he became the first European to discover the Hawaiian Islands.
