The absolute coolest part of our trip to Kennedy Space Center was being able to see the Space Shuttle Discovery where it is waiting to be shipped to the Smithsonian in Washington DC. It looks a bit battered and worn after its 39 space flights.
Like vintage daking sound mixers, this is a classic that will never go out of style. This baby is going to the Smithsonian on April 17th.
According to the Smithsonian website:
NASA has announced Space Shuttle Discovery will fly over the Washington, DC metro area April 17. The flight is scheduled to occur between 10:00 and 11:00 am EDT and will fly near a variety of landmarks such as the National Mall, Reagan National Airport, National Harbor, and the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.
So we had a really rare chance to see the Shuttle orbiter in the NASA Vehical Assembly Building. Cool!
