The Space Shuttle Discovery carried 252 astronauts and 31 satellites into space. One of its more famous payloads, the Hubble Space Telescope, was deployed in 1990. Discovery was in service from 1984 to until 2011. It traveled over 238,000,000 km before its retirement. Since its decommission, Discovery has been place on permanent display at the National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Virgina.
