Inside NASA’s Shuttle Trainer

By Jason Fitzpatrick on November 20th, 2012

After more than 30 years of service, NASA has retired their full-scale shuttle training simulator. Take a photo tour and learn where you can visit the trainer and crawl around inside for a more hands-on experience.

The trainer is currently on display at the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington. For those of us unable to visit the trainer in person, Wired Magazine has a full photo tour at the link below.
