In space shuttle Endeavour's flight deck, where the commander and pilot would sit, there are more than 2,000 switches, dials and buttons cover the walls and ceiling. Spare surfaces are covered with Velcro, where astronauts would stick anything — pens, cameras, food bags, laptops — to keep them from floating away. View the panorama above in fullscreen and zoom in to see the details.
