Ironically, the ipod probably has more computing power than the original computers used in the shuttles in the 80's (pretty sure they've upgraded the original equipment in the shuttles to at least 90's tech). :)

Thanks! (Since the original article link is swamped and down.)

I didn't expect that the iPod would be in an exterior shot! What a photo--you can even tell what generation iPod. I thought you had the wrong link--until I tried the high-res!

It can replace the ISS as my desktop picture :)
