bp's science: space shuttle Discovery (v.1)

Thanks to some friends of mine, I found out that the space shuttle Discovery will be flying (well, actually it will be taking a ride on the back of an 747 aircraft) over Washington D.C. today around 10-11am EST. The Discovery took it's final flight back in February of 2011 (seeing as the space program is cutting back) and will now be landing in Virginia and displayed at the Smithsonian's public hangar there. It will be joining other famed aircraft like the Enola Gay and the Blackbird SR-71.

Last night, in preparation for viewing the fly-in, Oliver and I watched this video of the final take off of Discovery. Oliver and I enjoyed it (4 times), maybe you will too.
