Looks like they added a new Shuttle artifact to the Space hanger. I assume it is a foot restraint for EVAs which attached to the Shuttle's CanadArm.

It was a bit awe-inspiring to see Discovery and an SR-71 Blackbird in a single view. Just out of view here, Glamorous Glennis. What a great day at the Smithsonian Air&Space. After previous visits to Kennedy Space Center and the California Science Center, I've now seen all three shuttle orbiter displays. Next on the list is NYC for Enterprise at the Intrepid Museum.

By the way if anybody out there is coming to the Portland, Oregon area definitely make time for the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. Spruce Goose, SR-71 Blackbird, and the only remaining Titan II SLV. It's just over an hour's drive from the Portland airport.

There is a Titan II in the Rocket Garden at the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex.

The Rocket Garden example is not a Titan II SLV. 14 former ICBM Titans were converted to the 23G Space Launch Vehicle (SLV) configuration. Thirteen were launched (twelve successfully). The sole remaining 23G SLV is the one on display at Evergreen.
