The Space Shuttle's Tank and booster "stack" stands at the entrance to the "Space Shuttle Atlantis" exhibit in its new home at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida on September 3, 2013. The venerable orbiter is now on display at the facility, highlighting the feats of NASA's shuttle program over the past thirty years. The Visitor Complex reports that attendance has increased in double digits since the opening of the $100 million, 90,000 square foot attraction. .UPI/Joe Marino-Bill Cantrell
