Space Shuttle Discovery Landing (STS-119)

There's something inherently beautiful about the fact that a 75-ton cargo spaceship can enter the atmosphere at 7.6 kilometers per second and, despite having no fuel to accelerate, gracefully descends and lands on the runway like an airplane.

watching the shuttle land on the runway knowing where it has been and at 1 point travelling at over 17000 mph still amazes my today
