Rockwell Space Shuttle

Image Description

Space shuttle Atlantis, the final orbiter among NASA's spaceplane fleet to fly in space, launched on its new mission on June 29th 2013 as the centerpiece of a $100 million tourist attraction in Florida.
Inside the five-story building, Atlantis has been mounted 30 feet (9 meters) above the ground and angled 43.21 degrees to one side. The shuttle's payload bay doors have been opened and a detailed replica of its robotic arm has been installed and extended such that it just reaches over the heads of visitors. Theatrical lighting and a 40-foot-long (12-meter) animated digital backdrop helps complete the illusion that Atlantis is back in space, orbiting the Earth.
