There’s something tragic about moldering spacecraft.
Never forget: this is the enormous spacecraft that flew itself into space, and orbited the world twice, entirely on automated computer control.
And then landed itself on a runway.
In a 38MPH crosswind.
Ending up just a few meters from the target mark.
In 1988. (Your computer, if you had one, ran MS-DOS at the time).
(Note: these are old photos. The facility has since tragically collapsed, killing eight workers and destroying the shuttles.)
