Space shuttle Discovery's orbital maneuvering system pods and forward reaction control system have been loaded into a container and are being transported from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida to White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico. There, they will undergo a complete deservicing and cleaning.
The removal is part of Discovery's transition and retirement processing. Shuttle Discovery will go to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va., Endeavour will go to the California Science Center in Los Angeles and Enterprise will be moved from the Smithsonian to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York. Shuttle Atlantis will go to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Photo credit: NASA/Jim Grossmann
