In just a few short hours, NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) will be taking off on a journey over the Atlantic Ocean to observe and collect data on the largest of Neptune's 13 moons, Triton. As the mission preparations were underway, I was given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tour the inside of this magnificent airplane, thanks to Mission Operations Manager Edward Harmon. This 40-year-old 747 isn't just the Queen of the Skies, she's the Queen of the Cosmos.

Thank you Andre for sharing this rare bird with us. Such an incredible job she performs. In my view, it's a space ship. Blown away with the modern cockpit this old bird has.
