Two space shuttle solid rocket booster casings arrived at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center Aug. 29 after a transcontinental trip from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The insert boosters, each of which is more than 120 feet long and 12 feet wide, were hauled overland by a modified tractor-trailer rig.
Now owned by the California Science Center in Los Angeles, they will remain in storage at NASA Dryden until the science center's planned exhibit hall to house the space shuttle Endeavour is built. The boosters will be mounted alongside Endeavour in a vertical configuration, similar to what they would have been prior to launch into space.
