Discovery begins her Atmospheric ReEntry

Dropping below 400,000 feet, Discovery started hitting the first traces of the earth's atmosphere as reentry begins for her crew of seven.

All APU's are running which will provide power to Discovery's elevon's, rudder and body flap as the orbiter whips through the atmosphere as a glider.
