International Space Station Destiny Laboratory Mock-up
The Museum of Flight’s high-fidelity mock-up of the International Space Station Destiny laboratory module was designed and built by SPACEHAB Corporation in October 2002. It was acquired by the Museum in 2006, in part through the generosity of SPACEHAB. The 20,000-pound (9,000-kg) mock-up contains 24 payload racks (in four six-bay rows) on the deck, port, starboard, and overhead sides, just like the module in orbit. The inch-and-a-half (3.8-cm) thick glass floor has been added to allow viewing of the deck racks.
