The Space Shuttle Discovery has earned a place of honor in the collection of national treasures preserved by the National Air and Space Museum. The longest-serving orbiter, the shuttle flew 39 times from 1984 through 2011, more missions than any of its sister ships, spending altogether 365 days in space. (Photo by Dane Penland)
