This picture does not show the control room of a space ship. This is the room under the
cupola of the German Reichstag, the seat of parliament. The parliaments chamber is below the
glass disk on the bottom of the picture. The trunk with mirrors coming from the top of the cupola
reflects natural light to the chamber of parliament, serves as an exhaust for the chamber, and
contains a heat recovery system that uses the energy in the exhausted air to heat the building.
