The Endeavor space shuttle is making its very last voyage. After it retires,
NASA will only have one functioning space shuttle left. Many of us have seen
pictures of the shuttle takeoff and landing but how many of us have seen
what it looks like from the rear. Here is a picture of the aft end of the
Enterprise, now on display at the Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy aircraft museum.
For anyone interested in aviation in the Washington DC area it is a must see

These are the nozzles that push it into orbit after the boosters drop away.
