Remark Photographer
N747NA (cn 21441/306) NASA and DLR (German Aerospace Center) worked together to create SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy). Here you can see the counterweight and the instrumentation section of the world's largest airborne telescope. The telescope itself is located behind the pressurized bulkhead.
