Space Shuttle Discovery Panorama

For years, the Space Shuttle Enterprise sat in this spot at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center out in Chantilly, Virginia. The Enterprise never went to space; it instead served as a test flight vehicle. In 2012, after the ending of the United States’ space shuttle program, the Space Shuttle Discovery was put on display in place of the Enterprise. During its 27 years of service, Discovery spent 365 days in space and flew nearly 150 million miles.
