The Space Shuttle Columbia
Thursday, 21st February 2008 by James Turnbull
However, here it is, seemingly unscathed in a Canadian field!
It turns out that is actually a full-scale model of Columbia at the “Great Island Science and Adventure Park”. It’s claimed that this is one of only such six replicas1 and the only that claims (rather insensitively) to let you experience “how the astronauts lived”.
But it’s doubtful that the experience will be very authentic, as this replica wasn’t built from any designs, instead being based on a 1/72 plastic scale model kit and a “large number of books”.
