ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
NetGeo has a photo of the Space Shuttle Discovery's interior that you can pan and zoom way into.
Space Shuttle in Extreme Detail: Exclusive New Pictures

The only thing better than huge high res aviation porn is having it locked up in a DRM tool of suckiness. They get repeat business for their advertising and I get to have a hard time zooming in to view any level of details because the tool sucks. Weeeeeeee.
Thats so much better than using Gimp or Preview to move through the photo because it involves a web browser!
By no means GigaPan quality, but I did manage to get a couple of good up-close shots of the Shuttle Landing at Dulles:

I still can’t find the cupholders.
