I saw this on NASA TV today and thought people here might like to see a picture. Discovery and Endeavour passing each other during a location switch, stopped for the photo op on Aug 11th. There should be video kicking around the NASA site somewhere, I saw it on the live stream, but tape delayed.


Poor old ships are looking rough... as you would expect but still pulls at the heartstrings.

I think they will get the OMS and RCS back for display. And certainly SSME dummies (or maybe even original ones after cleaning) Smiley

Here is another very nice photo:
