You are about to experience the first stop on our 'Audio Voyage' for Sun-Earth Day 2007: Living in the Atmosphere of the Sun. As a result of your feedback, we have decided to complement our normal Sun-Earth Day podcasts with a new series of descriptive audio reports from different NASA locations.

During each stop of this Voyage, we will be recording as much of the natural and ambient sound as possible. Your job is to pay close attention to everything you hear in the background. Troy's job is to describe everything he sees. Together, you should be able to paint quite a vivid picture in your minds eye.

Follow along as Troy Cline climbs into the mid deck of a real Space Shuttle Mockup at NASAs Johnson Space Flight Center in Houston Texas. You can use the images below as a reference to the detailed descriptions you hear in the podcast.
