Space Shuttle Exhibit
Layne Benofsky, 40, checks his email on his phone while inside the NASA Space Shuttle Trainer, Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, in the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. An employee of the Museum of Flight, Benofsky took on the role of mascot for the day's events. 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.
