Ever wondered?

Filed under: General, Space — Hema @ 4:42 pm

Have you ever wondered how a launch would look from realms beyond the earth?  I got these snaps as attachments in an email. Just thought I could share them with you. Here’s something that you don’t see every day…….


Space Station happened to be passing by when the Shuttle ‘Atlantis’  launched. The launch, as seen from the International Space Station (09/09/06).


Is it not beautiful?

  12. It is beautiful… It is also amazing that a shuttle that looks so imposing on the ground is so tiny when seen from space…
