The events for the transfer of the space shuttle Discovery are set to begin at 11 a.m. at the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy [[ Oodvar-Hazzy ]] Center in Chantilly. The celebration will continue through the weekend with a special program for students tomorrow and family activities on Saturday and Sunday.
