This fish-eye view shows off Discovery's cockpit as it was configured for the STS-95 Mission. Commander Curtis Brown's seat is on the left, with Pilot Steve Lindsey's on the right.
On several occasions, Discovery has been the first shuttle to venture into new territory. And as it ventures toward retirement, the legendary vehicle makes history once again.
Following its return from its current mission, which, after many months of delays is set to launch this week, Discovery will be the first of NASA's shuttle fleet to be put out to pasture.
