I love this video, however It makes me sad we suspended the Shuttle program! Thanks for the tag @tedalbracht ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#Repost @trafego_aereo

Atlantis waits under the mate/demate device at the Kennedy Space Center for a ferry flight to Rockwell's Orbiter Assembly Facility at Palmdale, California for an Orbiter Maintenance Down period. It is to make preparations for STS-92, scheduled for launch in January 1999. A Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft is seen in the background. 1997.

1987 GI Joe Defiant Shuttle with Payload (doors open). One of my favorite features of this toy is the tether which connects to Payload to give the impression that he is floating in space. #gijoe #yojoe #defiant #shuttle #spaceshuttle #toy #collectible #payload #1987 #1980s #80s

1987 GI Joe Defiant Shuttle with Payload (doors closed). Overall, with all the moving I've done, the shuttle and booster have fared well. The crawler on the other hand needs quite a bit of TLC. #gijoe #yojoe #defiant #shuttle #spaceshuttle #toy #collectible #payload #1987 #1980s #80s

I remember watching the Challenger space shuttle launch, only to not make it into space. The loss was great on so many levels. However, we were resilient and built another shuttle, Endeavor.
Reliving history and hoping for a positive outcome this time, we watched it launch and return home safely. In 2012, I watched it fly over my head on its way to Los Angeles' Science Center. This week, it was amazing to see it on display. All the detail and work that went into making this piece of history -- it's absolutely incredible --and makes me so proud to have witnessed it both up close and from afar. #space #shuttle #spaceshuttle #spaceshuttleendeavour #endeavor #losangeles #sciencecenter #california #californiaadventure #adventure #instagram #instaspace #space #nasa #science #stem #proud #proudmoment #history #victorylap #unitedstatesairforce #like #share #followgram #follownow Photo by @katushaphotos510

I was talked into climbing aboard the space shuttle simulator. Lol. Edie lost her mind in there.

Despite visiting the science center quite a few times, I'd never ventured in to see the space shuttle. The sheer massiveness of it left me in awe. Oh, and Edie seems to have a knack for photography! 😊

Das Kennedy Space Center in Florida ist wirklich beeindruckend! Ich wusste bisher erschreckend wenig über das Thema Raumfahrt, obwohl es so spannend und teilweise unvorstellbar ist, was bereits alles möglich ist!!! Und kurz nach der Ankunft im Park ist sogar eine Rakete gestartet! WAHNSINN! 😱🚀🚀🚀😱 #kennedyspacecenter #raumfahrt #spaceshuttle #rocketlaunch #rockt #florida #massiverespect #science #holliday

Though you may be all alone, remember that friends and family are always there to fill the space around you at any time!

The Dream Chaser. It's a mini shuttle in development by the private company Sierra Nevada Corporation and it will be ready for flight in 2019. This shuttle, unlike the old one, is much smaller and doesn't have wings you normally have on an aircraft. But you must be asking yourself how it flies, you must think that trying to fly this thing is like trying to burn something without heat. Well, they do magic. Literally. You see, the dream chaser is a lifting body, which creates lift without wings. So lifting bodies are magic! Well at least a bit. In order for an object to fly it's must be able to create lift using air, excepted rockets. Normal aircraft have wings to do that. Well lifting bodies can create lift the same way that wings can, but their fuselage is shaped almost like one and the fuselage does the job!

It's amazing how huge this actually is in person. #discovery #spaceshuttle
