Cool Shots of the Space Shuttle Over D.C.


The Space Shuttle Discovery gave Washington, D.C., residents quite the photo op yesterday. The retired orbiter flew on the back of a NASA 747 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida up to Dulles Airport, where it will have a permanent home next door at the Udvar-Hazy Center, part of the National Air and Space Museum. But before heading to Dulles, it flew a few passes over the nation’s capital.

Maxwell Kruger ’09, whose photography we featured in the magazine a few years ago when he was still a student, got himself up on a rooftop for the flyover. You can see one result of his efforts above, and more at this blog entry.
