Final shuttle "nose art" cancelled.

From this morning:
Update | July 6, 2011: Due to the logo being inadvertently applied to the door upside down, Atlantis will fly without its nose art. A plain black door was installed instead.
The final flight was originally going to have the shuttle program logo on the tank, but it was printed wrong so it won't fly on the final mission.
Kind of sad if you ask me, almost like flying the American flag upside down as in distress.  Although, with the state of the space program after this flight, I guess it's kind of appropriate!
