Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 17, space shuttle Discovery will travel to its new home at the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. The modified 747 that will carry it has been ferrying shuttles across the country for 35 years. These logos on the fuselage, designed by Tony Landis, depict how many times each orbiter has taken a ride on NASA 905, including Enterprise's 57 ferrys and five drop tests, and updated to include the final trips for Discovery, Enterprise and Endeavour to their new museum homes. (Atlantis, of course, will be staying at Kennedy Space Center.) Those of you around the D.C. and nearby Maryland and Virginia area can try to spot the shuttle between 10 and 11 a.m. as it arrives tomorrow.
