Space Shuttle Cockpit, Houston

Posted on Jan 2, 2012

I’ve been a space exploration nut for as long as I can remember so Space Center Houston and the rocket park at the Johnson Space Center are very high on my list of locations whenever I’m in the Houston area. This image was taken very early on a Sunday morning, before the Space Center Houston building was open to the public. I was there camping overnight with my son’s Cub Scout pack and we had the run of the facility giving me an excellent opportunity to take images without the usual crush of visitors in the way.

The cockpit here is actually part of a mock-up Orbiter called “Adventure” that lives inside Space Center Houston. The exhibit includes only the cockpit and part of the mid-deck but it’s still pretty impressive.

Prints of this image are available with widths between 36″ and 60″.
