Photo, Print, Drawing 22. General view of the mid-deck area looking forward and starboard. On the far left of the images are the avionics equipment bays. During missions the forward avionics bays would be fronted by lockers for mission equipment and the flight crew's personal equipment. Sleep stations would be located along the far wall if the orbiter was in a flight ready configuration. The hose and ladder on the right side of the image are pieces of ground support equipment. The hose is part of the climate control apparatus used while orbiters are being processed. The ladder is used to access the inter-deck passage, leading to the flight deck, while the orbiter is in 1g (earth's gravity). This view was taken in the Orbiter Processing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center. - Space Transportation System, Orbiter Discovery (OV-103), Lyndon B.
