I'm fortunate enough to have one of the Discovery shuttle onboard computers that was used during the launch of Hubble mission.

This unit was displayed at the Hubble event some years ago along with many unique preflight images and other Hubble-mission flown memorabilia. The computer will be on display again in a few weeks time in Uk (details later) along with the HAL/s computer manuals.

The computer was removed during computer upgrades. It had also flown on Columbia and Challenger before their fatal missions.

I wrote and performed the "wake-up" song "Space Is Our World" that was uplinked to the crew of STS-31 on the morning of HST deploy. I wish they'd contacted me about being on the DVD release. Oh well, I guess that tune is still "Lost In Space" somewhere!

Hmm... I look on the Pacific Science Center site in Seattle, and there is no mention of this. Any idea where the book and DVD can be ordered from?
