In this historical photo from the U.S. space agency, the rollover of the orbiter Discovery from the Orbiter Processing Facility Bay 2 to the Vehicle Assembly Building draws the attention of KSC employees. The orbiter displays the recently painted NASA logo, termed the meatball, on its left wing and both sides of the fuselage.

Discovery (OV-103) is scheduled for its 25th flight, from Launch Pad 39B, on October 29, 1998, for the STS-95 mission.

Each weekday, looks back at the history of spaceflight through photos (archive).
