Flight Deck Side View

Flight Deck Side View

The shuttle bay is in view through the bay windows of Discovery's flight deck. The joystick in the center helps astronauts complete precision positioning--with the help of external thrusters--when approaching the International Space Station or other docking destination. In the bottom right corner a Canadian government logo indicates the controls for Canadarm, a 15.2 meter-long external robotic appendage used to maneuver payloads. Canadarm represents an important instance of international space program cooperation.
