This is the flight deck of the space shuttle Discovery during her decommissioning process in the Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF). Several components are missing as part of that process including panels of switches, closed circuit TV (CCTV) screens, and storage lockers. During flight, the commander sat in the seat on the left and the pilot on the right. Hatches behind their seats lead below to the mid-deck. While in orbit, the rear windows looked out to the payload bay at any cargo operations while the windows on top usually gave a dramatic view of Earth far below.

I posted this same comment on my own panorama, even wrote emails 2 YEARS ago to chris@gigapan.org and customerservice@gigapansystems.com  Will open in a new tab or window and they said they understand my frustration. But still today (2 years later) the shame lame viewer is here.... and I have not uploaded a pano since, though i do have plenty more on my disk :( :( :(
