Space shuttle Discovery prepares to return to Earth

The shuttle Discovery prepares to return to Earth, after more than a week docked to the ISS.

Mexican Astronaut Jose Hernandez and Mexican-American, Danny Olivas, and 5 more crew closed the hatches of the ship last Monday to begin preparations for the return to the planet.

In this way, put an end to the discharge of tons of supplies and equipment to the space station.

The crew will board the famous computer-animated doll, Buzz Light year, which was launched last year to film scenes for educating children.

Finally, NASA rules out the possibility that the ISS change positions to avoid a fragment of a Chinese satellite hit by a missile in 2007, now considered a piece of space debris.
