The external fuel tank parked outside the VAB for the Hubble servicing mission, after being unloaded from its barge at the Cape. obscure I know but what the hell - Randy - keep the double entendres to a minimum :-) Image, as usual, prepared for you via Photoshop CS3 and the new tool de jour, Tiffen DFX.

it burns more than 3,000lb of fuel a second but has a zero carbon footprint - go figure :-) a Lincoln Navigator produces more greenhouse gas than this thing :-)

A smart bomb is only as clever as the idiot that tells it what to do

Do they get a discount if they pay cash when they fill'er up??

That is one mammoth tank!! I like it against the building!! The environmental aspect you mentioned right above is a very interesting fact. We wanna explore other planets / places, yet, donít know how to take care of our own so it seems.

Why do the pictures come out square when the lens is round??

Tanks for posting this, viewing it's been a gas ;-)

What I like about this, in all seriousness, is the demonstrated scale. Having the people milling around this thing gives a great perception as to the size of it. Tiffen DFX is a really nice, if expensive toy. Nice clean-up, as usual.

PS.. see all those rental vans? never know.. the next one you see on the street might not just be movers ;-)

Please, even if you don't visit my gallery, check out my "Faves".I've left them intact since day "1", and would like it if every image there got the attention they deserved.
