In a recent ceremony, more than two dozen astronauts helped usher the retired space shuttle Discovery into its new role as a Smithsonian exhibit. Our own Bo Bobko was the first in line of the Discovery commanders who escorted the shuttle to its new home at the National Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia.
