Columbia preps, rolls, and flies.

One benefit to working in a large science institution is that you find some crazy things in storage. I rescued these three gems from a storage closet, they must have been printed in the early '80s. There is a a touch of water damage, and plenty of dust, but overall it is a charming sequence of images showing the orbiter preparing for a 1981 launch (about a year before I was born.)

The poster on the left says "Nov. 25, 1980  11:30 am  Columbia Preps."
