  1. When I first went to Udvar Hazy they only had the Enterprise shuttle. Even though it wasn’t one of the ones that flew missions it still hit me. I had a poster of it as a kid and it was like looking at the future. Seeing it as an adult just brought it all back.

  2. I’ve been waiting for this video. I spend so much time at Hazy gigging. It’s great to see Adam finally visit.

  3. I got to see Discovery in the VAB before it was sent to the Smithsonian. I am fortunate enough to be a part of NASA Socials and seeing the Space Shuttle is one of the most emotional experiences one can have.
