Back in April, I was fortunate enough to see the Space Shuttle Discovery take it's last flight over DC before it reached it's final home, the Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center; part of the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum. Since that day, I've been dying to go see the shuttle up close. I finally made it the other day and I was not disappointed!!!!
|Just a couple photos from my initial series of photos on the shuttle.|
Below is a link to that blog:
|Heat tiles still scarred from the shuttle's last flight.|
|I was amazed to learn the white portion of the shuttle is actually quilted material!|
|Underneath the engines looking forward.|
|The Canada Arm.|
|You can actually see that the inside remains as it was after the last flight.|
