SEATTLE (AP) — An exhibit featuring a full-scale mock-up of a Space Shuttle has opened to the public.

The Museum of Flight exhibit opened Saturday. It features a mock-up NASA astronauts used to train before their missions. The public will be able to walk through the mock-up to learn about astronaut training.

It took three flights on a huge plane known as the Super Guppy to bring the massive mock-up to Seattle.
