How NASA Mounts a Space Shuttle on an Airplane

By Casey Chan on at

The Space Shuttle Endeavour just completed its final flight around California today and if you were wondering how a freaking space shuttle ends up on top of a 747, well, watch the video above. It's a mounting process that's not unlike strapping a few bikes to your car's roof (only a wee bit more complicated).

The Endeavour will now be on display at the California Science Center. Enjoy retirement E, you deserve it. [DailyOnTech via Geekosystem]
