Space Shuttle Cockpit and inside of shuttle

Back to Interesting Things


Here are images of the inside of the Space Shuttle with everything powered on for one last picture before the electronics and secret stuff were pulled out and removed. 
Additionally, the last commander ordered erased all the flight deck graffiti signed by all the crews over 25 missions; too bad!

These rare photos capture the Flight Deck (cockpit) of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, fully powered for one of the final times. Just a few weeks later, at 9:58am EDT on May 11, Endeavour was powered down for the final time in history. It was the last of the three space shuttles to have power. Below, other views show the mid-deck, gutted of its lockers and storage areas, and three final photos show the white room entrance in the Orbiter Processing Facility, signed by thousands over the years.
