Welcome to the thoughts that wash up on the sandy beaches on my mind. Paddling is encouraged.. but watch out for the sharks.
this must be one of those photoshop things, right? it does look like it was taken from a passenger plane, tho...
I think its real. The photographer just took around 100 shots to get this perfect one. With digital camera's this isn't a problem as you just delete all the 'not good enough stuff' and publish the best ones.
Iphones have a "burst" function that can take dozens of shots at a single touch of the button, so I'm sure professional equipment can do that as well. I wonder which shuttle this was....definitely not Enterprise. :/(Enterprise was an atmospheric tester only. Star Trek fans did not get their PR campaign's money's worth, I don't think..)
What a great picture. It is too bad the The Shuttle was retired without a proper replacement.
It's a real pity that the Space Program halted when it did. By now we'd had orbital space stations (proper ones), bases on the Moon and a colony on Mars. We'd be thinking of sending probes to the nearest stars...... I'm so disappointed that all the SF stuff I was reading about as a teenager still haven't come true yet.
