All Space Shuttles Look Alike

Editor's note: If you go to this Florida Today story you see an image identified as being Space Shuttle Endeavour located in the Florida Space Authority's Reusable Launch Vehicle hangar. If you go to this Florida Today story , you see the exact same image identified as being Space Shuttle Discovery. A check with KSC's photo archive confirms that this is indeed an image of Endeavour. Endeavour is in the RLV hangar. Discovery has been in Orbiter Processing Facility - Bay 3. Shuttles are prepared for launch in the OPF - not the RLV hangar. Yes, they are hard to tell apart. That's why they have their names painted in big, easy to see letters on each side.

Update: They have corrected their error.
