Video: Fanfare, All-Star Lineup Greets Discovery

Space shuttle Discovery arrived at the Air and Space Museum's Chantilly site Thursday.

The space shuttle Discovery rolled up nose-to-nose next to the shuttle Enterprise Thursday at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly.

Enterprise will head to New York City next week, while Discovery has found a permanent home in Chantilly. Former Discovery crew members were on hand to share in the day's festivities, in addition to several prominent speakers.

The speakers included NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, Smithsonian Secretary Wayne Clough, National Air and Space Museum Director Gen. J.R. "Jack" Dailey, former senator and astronaut and Chair of Smithsonian Board of Regents France Córdova.
