:eek: Never knew so much went into a single launch. All that custom equipment required. What about that hoist for the shuttle? Wouldn't want to drop it :) The underside of Discovery looks well charred too. Can't have many missions left before they have to scrap it..........

Fascinating stuff :splif:

It's amazing how high they lift it only to drop it down again to attach it to the big bottles :)

The winches have to be used to full extension to allow the steel cabling to stretch uniformly.

The hangars were originally buit for the Saturn V's in the 60's

Here's a timelapse of the Ares 1-X assembly, almost twice the height of the shuttle. Any larger and it wouldn't fit in the hangar, and there's no money for a new one.

- pick the HD option.
