Ben Cooper of Launch Photography is selling full sized prints of these amzing pictures. Think flying a spaceship is easy? Hell I can’t even look at these fish eye photos in full resolution wihtout starting to get a headache. Head on over and buy the full resolution pictures if space is your place, and geeking out is where you’re at.

Now just think if the astronauts had flipped one wrong switch things could have gone wrong on any one of the 137 space flights. And the only two that had any major problems it was the machine that failed not the operator. So next time you sit at a computer and the spell check squiggle highlights all over the place just be thankful you’re not flying a shuttle.

How cool is this? But seriously check out all of Ben’s photo galleries if you ever wanted to look inside the space shuttle. the sheer number of buttons and switches make my eyes twitch.
