OV-103 (cn OV-103) "Discovery" starts accelerating and her roll to get into the orbital insertion angle for the very last time. At this moment she has 142,917,535 miles on the odometer and will accrue approx. 5 million more. If you look closely, the red uniform of Commander Steve Lindsey in the front cockpit's side window. As designed two covers of the front reaction control system nozzles are falling of with one about to be burned in the lower part of the picture and other is at the mid deck level. So long Discovery!
