Discovery Space Shuttle: Wheels Stopped

Wheels stopped at 10:58:14 central, 3/9/2011.

27 years in service
365 days in space

Discovery, a lovely, reliant workhorse in NASA's shuttle fleet, has taken her final voyage.
Nose down at 10:57:28 central
Wheels stopped, 10:58:14

It was a beautiful tribute landing, full of sentiment and quotes that will enter history books.
But you know what?
Next quote was
"Crew now checking for leaking hypergolics."

Can't a girl get any privacy??
Let her retire with dignity.
