Attaching the Space Shuttle to the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft

Discovery rockets toward space today (on it’s final orbital mission before heading off to a museum) I was doing a bit of research on the space shuttle online. Came across some information on the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, the big 747 you’ve seen on everything from CNN to James Bond’s Moonraker. But if you look very very closely at the connecting point, you’ll find some instructions for the guys who attach the Shuttle to the 747.
