Discovery (OV-103) was NASA's third space-rated orbiter and was launched on Aug. 30, 1984, for its first mission, STS-41D. The last flight of the orbiter was mission STS-133 in 2011. Space Shuttle Discovery flew 39 times from 1984 to 2011 and spent altogether 365 days in space. Discovery now is the centerpiece of the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
