This scale model is part of the spaceflight area, and placed right under the left wing of Discovery.

Columbia was the first spaceworthy Space Shuttle, first being launched in 1981. On its 28th flight in 2003, it was damaged during launch and was destroyed during re-entry.

This scale model portrays Columbia as she would have looked in her early years – the name "Columbia" on the cargo bay door, the American flag on the left wing and "USA" on the right wing, and the NASA worm logo. The black leading wing roots were a unique feature of Columbia.

S115-E-05689 (12 Sept. 2006) — Although no astronauts are visible in this picture, action was brisk outside the space shuttle/space station tandem when this digital still image was recorded on Sept. 12. Astronauts Joseph R. Tanner and Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-Piper participated in the first of three scheduled STS-115 extravehicular activity (EVA) sessions as the Atlantis astronauts and the Expedition 13 crew members join efforts this week to resume construction of the International Space Station.
