There was a Satellite with 2 astronauts on it, which was removed around *Insert Correct Date here* because no one really knows why.mayoki said:Is it my (8o's impaired) imagination, or did there used to be a spaceship in the planetarium on Spaceship Earth? I seem to remember that from my trips in 85 & 86.
BTW, I'm going to feel real bad if the answer is no.
UGH! NOOOOO! I DIDN'T INTEND THIS! I was just being stupid. Sorry! I should edit my post now. Sorry for any confusion! No incident! None whatsoever! WHATSOEVER!!!biggbird5182 said:Why did they remove it? What incident happened?

As well as the satellite and astronaut there was also a form - as in a shape in the darkness - of a space station. The station had a window in it which had a girl looking out, hands on glass, watching the work on the satellite. It was this `station` that the ride passed under and into backwards, and it was also the structure that held the red strips of light and dome above the track as the descent began.
Here is a work in progress of the layout of 180 top pre 1994:
