Watch via Webcam as the Boeing 747 Space Shuttle Carrier is Reassembled

Space Center Houston, located at 1601 NASA Parkway, is in the process of building an exciting new $12 million complex to celebrate Houston’s leading role in space exploration!  This new Texas landmark will be the first place in the world where visitors can see the full-scale Space Shuttle model and the retired Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA-905) in classic piggyback configuration.

Space Center Houston has aimed a webcam at crews as they reassemble the modified NASA Space Shuttle Carrier that rolled down Highway 3 from Ellington Field and then traveled down NASA Parkway late in April. Watch via webcam at: http://spacecenter.org/giving/747-project/.

The photos (below) were taken on April 29th, after the Boeing 747 had completed its first day of travel and was “parked” parallel to Highway 3.
