These are the control rooms for the handling of the European Space Agency's ATV. The ATV is designed to carry experiments, fuel and supplies to the International Space Station. Whilst attached, the ATV provides extra space for the crew and takes on solid and liquid waste from the station. The control of the vehicle from Toulouse is in conjunction with Houston in the United States and Moscow in Russia. Photographed on 9th February 2007.
