I didn’t know they lifted the orbiter so high above the ET/SRB assembly. What’s the purpose of that? Just to get it over to the other side? Or just because they’ve got a building that could stack Starun Vs if we had them, and they want to show off their crane?
It’s no secret that I’m no real fan of the Space Shuttle program (since it means the exclusion of almost everything else), but there’s no doubt that I am a fan of US manned space flight. Since the shuttle is where it’s at, I’m pulling for them.
UPDATE: Ooops. Had missed this.
