The Space Shuttle Discovery is due to come in to land today, just before 5pm GMT. We watched the shuttle go up successfully almost two weeks ago. Since then, there's been all manner of space walks and scientific experiments, but now it's time for Discovery to come back down to earth for the final time.

The landing can be viewed on a live stream via NASA TV, available here, and NASA are on Twitter as well, although I don't know how comprehensive their coverage will be. More importantly, I'll be Factbyte Factboxing the event throughout, so join me then!
