If you got stand under an orbiter while she is being processed for space flight, it would look like this. This is inside OPF #3. The Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF) is the hangar where NASA's Space Shuttle Orbiter undergoes maintenance between flights. When a mission is completed, the orbiter is parked in its OPF. Its previous mission payloads are removed and the vehicle is fully inspected, tested, & refurbished. Discovery has flown 2 missions since.
