Default So, how did Discovery get to the launch pad?

Now with Discovery happily at the ISS, I thought to share some pictures of the roll-out, and our tour of the OPF and VAB the day before. We gained unique access to the processing facilities and the experience was truly spectacular.

If you want to see more pictures or read the full story behind the trip, you can read more here.

Default That's one of the fuel lines

Under each wing is a fuel intake: thick for hydrogen, thin for oxygen. It's all relative, it's well over a foot wide.
