I've been watching the feed off and on since last night, saw it in another thread.

It struck me today just how epic the capsule's cockpit is, as well as the suits. The rest of us grew up with the Stay-Puft orange stye suits, and the White Boxes suits, we grew up with knobs and buttons and switches and leavers in the capsules and shuttles of our eras.

This is like watching Star Trek come to life -- sharp, sleek, clean, neat. The touch screens rammed it home for me, "Wow, they're using touch screens!....Damn, I remember the knobs and such. That's a big leap!"

Definitely, that really struck me too!

I'd always thought of space capsules as 'dumb' machines, simple vehicles only designed to get astronauts back safely through reentry, I had no idea that there was so much going on.

I was particularly struck by the size of the Dragon capsule, I've always thought that it looked tiny, on the outside, but when I watched a tour of the inside and they showed the separate areas, as well as the control panel and 'cockpit' (?) area, I was kind of blown away,

We're living in the future, for sure,
