Endeavour Flight Deck (Powered Up)

Space Shuttle Endeavour, known as OV-105, flew twenty-five missions in her twenty years of service amounting to 296 days in space, 4,671 orbits of Earth and a distance traveled of almost 200 million kilometers (122 million miles). She carried the first pieces of the International Space Station to orbit and made the first servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope.

This view shows Endeavour's Flight Deck powered-up and lit exactly how it would be in space. Endeavour was powered down for the final time on May 11, 2012, as part of the decommissioning process and will never be able to do so again.
