None of the other shuttles on display have equipment in the cargo bay. Endeavour's final pose will also be unique: It will be the only one of the three retired shuttles that orbited the Earth —Endeavour, Atlantis and Discovery — to be posed with its nose pointing to the stars, just like when it flew into space.The plan is for people to first watch a movie about Endeavour before the screen rises, allowing guests to see the shuttle vertically."Just like it's ready to launch," Rudolph said. Walking to the other side, people will be able to peek inside the craft."That payload bay door will be open, and you'll be able to look inside," he said, and get a view of the laboratory and storage pod, named Spacehab. Visitors will be able to walk underneath the massive engines.
