    I found this and think it is fascinating. It is an interactive view of the flight deck of the Discovery.
    I read everything about astronomy and the shuttle program, I am really going to miss it.
    I also took up a lot of space in school........... :newsmile082:

    After it loads you have a small mouse pointer on the screen. You can hold down a left click, move your mouse and look anywhere in the flight deck.
    I don't believe they had enough instruments...........

    Now that's cool. Do you think they really know what all those buttons, switches, knobs, and meters do??? Hope they have the HD manual with them. :D

    Very cool indeed. They got plenty of joysticks to keep the kids busy with video games during the trip so they don't have to hear "Are we there yet?":D

    I like the two shop lights too for those roadside repairs:bigsmiley11:

    Wow, I thought the new touring bikes had a lot of gadgets. But how would you like to go all the way around the world on that seat? Good thing there's no gravity in space.

    I think I prefer the seat on my Softail.
