Civilians steer NASA satellite from an old McDonald's

I hadn't been aware that, if you ask NASA nicely, you'll be allowed to take the controls of a satellite floating in outer space.

Clearly, I need to get out more, as this is what a group of very interested civilians are doing from their headquarters in a McDonald's.

Let's be fair, it's an old McDonald's. It doesn't serve burgers anymore. Indeed, as Betabeat reports, it's now referred to as McMoon's. From here, Keith Cowing, a former NASA employee who hasn't lost his enthusiasm for space, huddles with his team to re-create the joy of satellites gone by.
