Enterprise -> Discovery
Visited the Air and Space Museum this past weekend; at a glance, I saw this week's winning photo as the same as I took. Expanded it — and had to show my 12-year-old son. He recognized the site in an instant — but noticed that something was different. I hope you find the change from Enterprise to Discovery as curious as we did.
