Galileo Restoration Update - March 2013

Galileo restoration continues very strongly. We have a great team at Master Shipwrights and they are working six days a week.

Most of the woodwork is complete. It's looking great and we continue to work on paint colors, lettering sizes, that sort of thing.

The metal nacelles have been reattached and are being restored... they were damaged over the years, when moved (probably by forklift) and need a bit of structural reinforcement. We're also installing a "pick point" so that they can be moved easily and without damaging them when done.

Lots of great work here. She's looking really, really good.

There's no exact timing but she should be done - that's right done! - in about a month, give or take. More to come on that!

Just beautiful, and it's obvious how much care is being put into it.

Please let us know when it's ready for a cruise around the Solar System!

Is that a newly fabricated landing strut next to an original or has it just been cleaned up? (I'm referring to the ones next to the stairs at the rear of the shuttle.)

Good catch. That's a new strut. There was only one when it was bought... so fabricated a second.
