In the Vehicle Assembly Building, the orbiter Discovery (viewed from behind the Space Shuttle Main Engines, port side) is raised to a vertical position in order to be mated with the external tank. The orbiter displays the recently painted NASA logo, termed the "meatball," on its left, or port, wing. The logo also has been painted on both sides of the aft fuselage. Discovery (OV-103), the first of the orbiters to be launched with the new art work, is scheduled for its 25th flight, from Launch Pad 39B, on Oct. 29, 1998, for the STS-95 mission.
