The crude technology of Nasa

We seen some amazing work done in space by NASA the last couple of days, now lets take a closer look at the cockpit from which they control space and view the Earth:


This is it, a view from the window looking at Earth and the Hubble solar panels.



Now lets zoom in a bit more....

On the right we see a screen which is professionally fixed with... Duck tape



You would expect the latest touch screen displays, but we all know these break easily so why not reuse the buttons we used on the Apollo missions back in the 60's. Proven technology:



Lets make sure everything is nicely labelled, but hey, we all know handwritten fonts are cool. So lets label item 125 with some special clear type:


Ehm, where was that strip indicating which button is for what. .. Oh wait, there it is.



Astronauts have the best of the best when it comes down to equipment, you would expect top of the line Rayban sunglasses with special UV filters. But hey, one of them decided to bring his adidas licensed sunglasses. "because they are so comfy when playing volleyball"


Let's hope they will make it back safely.

Update: they made it back safely!
