Shuttles Come Nose-to-Nose
NASA’s space shuttles Endeavour and Atlantis switched locations currently during Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and in a routine came “nose-to-nose” for a final time in front of Orbiter Processing Facility 3.

After a stop during a Los Angeles International Airport, Endeavour will pierce in mid-October to a California Science Center for permanent open display.
Now in a estimate trickery after withdrawal a Vehicle Assembly Building, convey Atlantis will bear preparations for a pierce to a Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in November, with a grand opening designed for Jul 2013.
