Uploader comment: View into the DLR Columbus Control Center, located at Oberpfaffenhofen/Germany. The Columbus module is Europe’s most significant contribution to the space station programme. The module was launched in FEB2008 from launchpad 39A at Cape Canaveral to the ISS by space shuttle ATLANTIS mission STS-122 and attached to the ISS. The Columbus Control Center controls the module and the work performed on board. Left screen shows a permanent view from an ISS onboard cam, right screen the mission schedule of the Columbus module. More than 40 jobs were created at DLR and another 60 in subcontracting companies. This team monitors and controls the module - in close collaboration with Astrium, ESA and NASA as well as partners from Russia, Japan and Canada.
