AS at Kennedy Space Center

So earlier this year Kennedy Space Center opened its new Atlantis Space Shuttle exhibit building. Included is the AS motorhome that was used to shuttle astronauts to/from the launch site. They don't give you any interior views, unfortunately. Sorry if this has been posted before.

Here's one of the Airstreams up in St Louis in the Edward Jones Dome in 2011 for the First Robotics Championship Event. NASA provides the internal communications network and it all funnels through this Airstream. Insides have pretty much been trashed and it's very utilitarian inside holding network support equipment. The NASA folks assigned to this event hold their breath in driving this some distance from Fla, due to its age. It needs maintenance.

The year after it didn't make the trip due to some mechanical issues. I'm not sure if it made it this year since I'm no longer working at the convention center.
