WDW History nut
I`m glad someone else remembers this! Can you help carify a few points?steve2wdw said:The whole satellite/spacestation is still there. After you spin and start heading backwards you pass through the old sets. There are some video screens overhead now, but as you pass through the set you can see the outline as you look towards the roof of the dome. In the 80's you actually passed through the satellite (on the outside). This is all merely in shadow now, but as you travel backwards and look towards the stars on the domed ceiling, imagine all the set pieces (they are dark now) painted white. I believe the girl looking through the window was about 30 feet down the backwards portion to the left. It actually seemed like the whole satellite/spacestation was moving, because as you travelled backwards, it seems as though the set is moving against the stars. It still appears that way, although you would never realize this was originally a set piece. It just looks like partial ceiling now.
Do you mean the space station? I know the satellite was very close to the right side of the track as you passed the solar pannels, but I don`t recall actually passing `through` it.In the 80's you actually passed through the satellite (on the outside).
The girl was to the right, literally just before the red strip lights on the underside of the station appeared above you. Thankfully I have this bit on video; the satellite is too murky to see detail, but the girl and station lights are quite clear when enhanced - you would look right and slightly up to see the girl (having rotated fully backwards), then only a few seconds later drift under the red lighting. Ring any bells?I believe the girl looking through the window was about 30 feet down the backwards portion to the left
