A sea of switches, displays, gauges and buttons greet astronauts, engineers and the few lucky visitors who crawl inside a space shuttle.
In the shuttle's lower deck, there is the ship's crew hatch and a tunnel leading to an airlock, the cargo bay and the docking system which would link to the International Space Station.
