Shuttle boosters with raptor

At one side of Kennedy Space Center is a giant building housing the Space Shuttle Atlantis, and outside of it, visible from many miles away, is the giant booster/external-tank combination that used to lift it into orbit.  As I stood looking up, sort sort of raptor drifted by (I liked to think an eagle), lazily comparing its own flight capabilities to ours.
