Shuttles Prepare For New Display Homes

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., Aug. 12 (UPI) — In a rare sight, two of NASA’s space shuttle orbiters were together as their decommissioning continued at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.

The retired shuttles Discovery and Endeavour presented a rare photo opportunity Thursday as they passed each other while swapping buildings in the ongoing process of being prepared for their eventual homes in museums, Florida Today reported.

Discovery was moved from temporary storage in the Vehicle Assembly Building to Orbiter Processing Facility Bay No. 1, while Endeavour made the reverse move, NASA said.

Discovery will be displayed at the National Air & Space Museum Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia, while Endeavour will head to the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

Atlantis, which will remain at the Kennedy Space Center for display, currently is in Orbiter Processing Facility Bay No. 2.
