the engines are placed symmetrically.

Look again, the gap between the two engine-pods facing the camera. The same gap that contains the side entrance is clearly wider than the others.

Dragon V2 at the Newseum!

Don't know what the heck a [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newseum"]Newseum[/ame] is, maybe a really bad pun but Dragon V2 is going to be displayed there for a day. ONE DAY ONLY.

A tweet from SpaceX's Twitter
Attn. DC SpaceX fans – next gen #Dragon will on public display for 1 day only tmrw 6/11 at the @Newseum! pic.twitter.com/Ne1Rf9TXWB

It's going to be weird hearing them radio "Hawthorne" instead of "Houston".

I'm more interested in seeing those "badass" space suits SpaceX contracted for a bit back.

Excuse the explicit language, but damn that looks cool.

The suit, not the guy inside, he's cool in his own other way. :)

I still prefer the white clean room suits they usually wear like the ones in Interstellar but...it still peaks on my cool meter.
