The Space shuttle Discovery is one of the 3 currently existing space shuttle orbiters. It's used for launching cargo and scientific experiments into Earth Orbit, and could not escape Earth's gravity.
This model here is a 2004 lego set, much like my spirit mars rover. The cargo Bay used to have a robot arm, but I'd removed it for other purposes. This modelis not minifigure scale. Anyways, hope you like it.
About this creation
A closer look at the Space Shuttle's cabin. This part of the shuttle is where crew members eat and sleep. (Sometimes experiments are carried out in laboratories carried in the shuttle's cargo bay)
The SSMEs (Space Shuttle Main Engines), as well as the 2 orbital-manouevering engines (on the top-left and top-right corners)

THAT IS THE BEST SPACE SHUTTLE I'VE EVER SEEN! Dude, you are my idol. MOC pages should recognize you as the best builder ON EARTH!!! (And in space ha, ha, chuckle, chuckle!!)
Thanks! But I consider myself an Intermediate Lego builder. (There are so many creations out there that are better than mine.)
