I would hope that they could build a space ship and actually get the control panels right side up.

I think it's somewhat reflective. I did find this comparison to be pretty apt.

OK if this is actual footage, it makes NASA look like bafoons, and makes me wonder what kind of shit our military has.
I bet the MIC's space program is just nasty.

This image is of the console in the "up" position. If you watch the unveil video, you'll notice that it is not fixed. It flips up out of the way for astronauts to get in and out of the seats. Kind of like the TNG consoles that rotate sideways to allow operators to sit, these just happen to be vertical.

EDIT:
About the 12:40 mark of the unveil video you see Musk entering the spacecraft. About 13:10 you see him operating the console after climbing into a chair. In case your in a hurry to see the console. Personally, I thought the whole video was worth watching.

It's to win the manned space vehicle contract for NASA. Two other teams are competing, Boeing and Sierra Nevada. I'm sure it will be used in the private sector once someone figures out what to do with it though.

Crazy. I wouldn't think it would stay upright falling back to earth in the wind.

OK, maybe I should have said decided what to fund it to do. As the costs go down I'm sure tons of projects will open up. Question is just who will pony up for it.
