The Next Steps

Inside the cockpit of a shuttlecraft, with the pilot and co-pilot preparing for docking with a space station.

The shuttlecraft docked with the station -in this case a top docking, but a nose docking is also possible. Two other shuttlecraft are seen, each of a slightly different configuration, since this scene looks forward to a time when shuttles, like aircraft today, will be specially designed according to their functions.
