Appearing below the main engine nozzles are the blue mach diamonds signalling the speed and force at which Atlantis roars into space. Around Atlantis' tail are pieces of ice dislodged during the launch.

I havent amended the image as such - just cleaned it up. a lot. Picture Code are the makers of Noise Ninja which is proving to be invaluable as it can easily be profiled to accomodate NASA's digital cameras.

Art is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

That's so insane...I had yet to see a shot of the shuttle from such an angle. Where on earth did NASA shoot this from?

Awesome closeup! The best angle on a shuttle I've ever seen. This would make a perfect huge poster. Great job!
