NASA's 747SP N747NA, the Stratospheric Observatory For Infra-red Astronomy (SOFIA) is housed in the newly dedicated Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility. An infra-red telescope will look out through the large opening of the fuselage. The 747SP will carry the telescope above most of the water vapor in the atmosphere to provide a clear view of space.
