SPACE: Shuttle returns to flight picture infographic

Shuttle returns to flight picture

Graphic News

May 15, 2005 -- The space shuttle Discovery is set to return to flight. Picture shows new cockpit, in which 11 new full-colour, flat-panel display screens replace 32 gauges and electromechanical displays and four cathode-ray tube displays. The new "smart glass cockpit" is 75 pounds 34kg) lighter and uses less power than before, and its colour displays reduce the pilot's workload during critical periods and provide easier pilot recognition of key functions.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
