    This is the view seen from the space center this morning. Space Shuttle Discovery doing a last fly by just over an hour ago at Kennedy Space Center on its way to the Smithsonian in Washington DC. Its the end of an era.

    I had every intention of getting footage of it in DC, but it was early and traffic made me late.

    Sadly...about an hour ago we sent off the last of the last space shuttles to California. This is Endeavor. I don't have any pictures from co-workers yet of it flying over the community but I will post if I can. I thought the following timelaps of its preparations was a cool thing to post. Enjoy:

    Great shots.

    But, what, NASA couldn't be bothered to clean her up a bit before the last flight?

    No point in cleaning it up before the flight.

    The pictures are very clear and beautiful. NASA should should try to clean space shuttle. It is looking in bad condition.

    Discovery was commissioned in November 1982 and made its maiden flight in 1984. Discovery is currently the oldest operating shuttle in the United States. During its 26-year service, the shuttle made 39 flights into space.
