Space Shuttle at Launch Complex 39-A

NOTE: The images with the shuttle in place were removed. -- This is launch pad 39-A, part of Launch Complex 39 where the Apollo and shuttle missions launched. You can clearly see in this image that they are preparing shuttle Discovery for a launch. The angle is bad to see the shuttle itself, but the boosters and external fuel tank are clearly visible. The shuttle is hidden behind the Rotating Service Structure which is part of the structures of the pad. For launches, it's already rotated out of the way. There is a sign on the road near the pad that reads 'Go Discovery' which shows that it's Discovery on the pad. Since we can now see the image was taken in May of 2008, it's clear this is STS-123, which flew on May 31, 2008.
