Space Shuttle Exhibit
Amanda Plemmons shows off her custom-made space shawl while exploring the NASA Space Shuttle Trainer exhibit, Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, in the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. "Standing inside the trainer and looking up; it's almost as good as being there," Plemmons said. The trainer, which was built in the 1970s and used to train every space shuttle astronaut over three decades, opened to the public Saturday and will remain a part of the museum's permanent exhibits.
