Lab View

Lab looking forward

For now, a quiet lab

As of now, the laboratory space on the Sally Ride is bare-bones. The countertops are still wrapped to protect the surfaces, shelves and drawers lay empty. An area that will soon be covered with up to 15 computer monitors, showing readouts from every sensor onboard, is just another wall. This lab, and the “wet” lab next door, will house equipment and computers from as many as 24 scientists soon enough. It has likely seen its last quiet day. Here’s a 360 degree view of the main lab.
