My son Garrett and I were at the Udvar Hazy museum in Chantilly, Va today to watch the Shuttle Discovery arrive at her new home, and to say farewell to the Shuttle Enterprise. I recorded a little audio of Discovery moving down the track to go nose to nose with the Enterprise. It was a historic moment, seeing two shuttles that close together.

I made a little slideshow on Picpals. If you can’t see it in this blog post,
