Happy Easter to my fellow rocket and space fans

Finally, an on-topic Easter-themed photo!

Easter Peeps Welcome Discovery! Check out this fun Peeps diorama depicting the celebration of Space Shuttle Discovery's arrival at our Udvar-Hazy Center on April 19, 2012. Museum docent John Bretschneider and education volunteer Katy Bretschneider created the diorama and entered it into the annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest. Congrats John and Katy on your wonderful creation, we love it!
Discovery and Enterprise pose nose to nose outside the Udvar-Hazy Center with the U.S. Marine Corps Marching Band, cheering peeps waving posters and American flags, and astronauts in their orange suits. "Welcome Discovery and Godspeep Enterprise."
