This is an animated loop of a female engineer sits at a desk covered in papers and work, typing on a laptop. Her hair is pulled back in a large bun, she wears glasses and a white lab coat with a dress shirt underneath. After she types on the computer, she spins in her chair, turning to look at the orbiter behind her. It hangs suspended in the large workspace behind her. The orbiter's solar panels then spin and stop. She turns back to her computer to type.
