Voted by United Press International as one of the top pictures of 2007, this is a photo of the Soyuz TMA-11 spacecraft on Oct. 8 as it was transported by train to its launch pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The spacecraft launched two days later, bringing the Expedition 16 crew to the International Space Station.

LOL at Randy's comment.
Phil, congratulations !!! You got here much more than the subject matter - for me there are lots of threads to pick up.
BTW is it my imagination that in the thumbnail I felt certain it was a manipulation showing the two fellows doing the job of pulling this space ship manually so to say ... Reminds me a famous Russian painting.

The painting I had in mind is: "Burlaks on Volga River" showing men towing the boats. Just had to say it as I just remembered the title. Still the painter's name has not come back yet to me ... LOL

Phil, my 5 year old grandson is going through your space images and he said 'that's is a really cool spaceship'. I thought you might appreciate the words of the innocent ;=)

Saw this on the "Featureds" section...Nice capture...I was just a kid when "The Space Race" between the U.S. and the old Soviet Union was considered serious business...I read once that when Sputnik went into orbit, American scientists and astrophysicists were working day and night, full tilt keep up...
