OV-104 (cn OV-104) "Atlantis" trails vapor and causes her own cloud effect as she continues through her energy management system that bleeds of the excess speeds prior to the 200+ MPH engine off touchdown. Here she is in the 2nd heading alignment cylinder with tail brake open. As it nears the landing site, the orbiter is steered into the nearest of two heading alignment circles called HACs. Each has a radius of 18,000 ft. The orbiter is now in subsonic flight, at 49,000 ft., and about 22 mile from its touchdown point.

Rockwell Space Shuttle
Off-Airport - Kennedy Space Center

Remark
Photographer
OV-103 (cn OV-103) If you were an astronaut and were going to climb aboard the shuttle, the round hatch is the entry way. So this is how you enter the $2.4 billion dollar (list price) machine. The White blankets (seen here) coating the aircraft are made of coated Nomex felt reusable surface insulation. They are used on the upper payload bay doors, portions of the midfuselage and aft fuselage sides, portions of the upper wing surface and a portion of the OMS/RCS pods for heat exclusion.

With the shuttle grounded forever, a Delta IV rocket streaks into the night with WGS-4, a military communications satellite. In the foreground is Explorer, a full size shuttle mockup about to be shipped to Houston for display from its previous museum at the Kennedy Space Center.
