Several weeks ago the Space Shuttle Orbiter Discovery left the Kennedy Space Center on its final flight. It was carried onboard a 747, and was flown to the Dulles Airport outside Washington DC. Discovery was quickly added to the Smithsonian collection, at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.
This video shows what it is like to slowly circle Discovery and absorb all the detail. The video also includes some footage from a 1994 NASA employee tour for comparison.
It is incredible to be so close to Discovery and notice details that you never noticed before. For example, note the tiles that are beveled at the base of the rocket motors. As well as the smaller rocket motors used to adjust the orbiter’s position while in space.
