Discovery’s tuckus

This busy little zone of corners and numbers was my favorite. Having played with many a shuttle toy, I knew what to expect, but it was still startling to see everything jammed together.


The flat trailing edges were especially interesting in person – seeing several centimeters treated as aerodynamically negligible really brought home the scale of this thing and the fly-like-a-brick approach.


(Also spelled tuchus, etc.)
