Space Shuttle Atlantis Update

Inside Orbiter Processing Facility-2 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a United Space Alliance technician prepares to close Space Shuttle Atlantis’ midbody door for the final time. The orbiter is undergoing final preparations for its transfer to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor complex targeted for November.










Space Shuttle Atlantis is targeted to leave OPF-2 on October 17th and stay in the VAB for the final time.

Indeed. :( I'm sad to see the final one get removed. I wonder what the CSC plans on doing with it.

At least now you westerners can see what SSMEs looked like.

You better go see Endeavour.

Oh, so you just classify me with everyone over on this side, huh?!?!

I will, I know the boys would LOVE to see it. I have been wanting to go back to Cali for a while cuz it's so nice there, and so has Danny. One of these days, maybe next year when he comes back on leave or something.

Well yeah! You haven't seen what those bad boys look like, yet!

Honestly, if you're planning on making the trip to see Endeavour only once, then I HIGHLY recommend waiting 4-5 years before going. The California Science Center has Space Shuttle Endeavour sitting on the transporter for the next 4-5 years while they finish it's permanent home. If everything goes according to plan, it's permanent display will be mind-blowing. The California Science Center plans on hoisting Endeavour to a vertical position and mating it to two replica SRBs and an ET. This will be the only place where you will be able to see what it look liked when a Space Shuttle was positioned for launch.

Plus, I plan on making it down there to see the temporary display and permanent display, and meeting you in person would have to be a must if I made it over to that side of the country.

Always a good day when your professor tries to use space-related examples and you can correct her.

Hey Jordy,

So, how is about Austin's Pre-K class is taking a field trip tomorrow to the Space Museum here in town. He will be excited. I haven't even been to it, and lived here for 12 yrs.
