I was on the USS Alabama yesterday and unexpectedly came across this framed flag and patch from space shuttle Discovery's first flight. Sorry about the glare.

I was there a few weeks ago and missed that.

Funny how you see stuff like that in the oddest places. I was at the Golden Spike National Park in Utah (where they drove the last spike of the transcontinental RR in 1869) and they had a replica gold spike that was flown on STS-38 in a display case at the visitor center. I sure didn't think I'd see space stuff there!

Yes, space related items pop up when you least expect them. I was touring around the USS Alabama, walked into a room on the ship and there was the framed presentation hanging on the wall. Never expected it...
