Re: How to pilot a Soyuz spess wessel

Metryq, agreed, that idea about 60's TV sets didn't come to my mind.
I was just comparing number of buttons, because Soyuz-TMA is 8 meters long spacecraft, travelling to LEO for two days, and USS Enterprise, you know, 300 meters starship with warp capacity, regardless it's fictional.

Our Federal Space Agency is currently working up a design to replace Soyuz ships - Prospective Piloted Transport System, and I suppose we've seen it in the recent 'Gravity' film (as it is about nearest future - there is also Chinese staton which is not built yet)
If you are interested, I could post some other interesting/boring tecnical staff about Soviet/Russian spacecrafts and probes.
