And the coming US spacecraft; Sierra Nevada Dream Chaser, SpaceX DragonRider, Boeing CST-100 and NASA MPCV (Orion), will all have mostly glass cockpits and be able to fly autonomously - crewed or not.

Looks overly complicated, they could clean this up with a few touchscreens and Windows 8 Shuttle Edition.

Woohoo the Canadian name and flag is the only country with it's name inside.

Thats because the Canadian Space Agency makes a lot of the equipment that is used in the shuttles and the International Space Station.
