Beauty in the night

My son loves the space shuttle. He desperately wanted to see a space shuttle launch when we went to Florida (Disney World) the summer before last. The launch that had been scheduled for the week of our visit was postponed, so he didn't get to see the actual launch. But we did visit Kennedy Space Center and he got to see a shuttle up close and even go into part of it. He was able to touch space shuttle tires that had actually been in space.

So we visit NASA's web site quite often to keep up with what's going on in the space shuttle program. This morning I found this photo at their web site. And it is simply gorgeous.

    Wow. What an amazing display of power. Do you suppose there will be all that light and noise when we go up? :)

  2. I've often wondered about how that will look. I don't expect noise, but I think there will be light--and it will be coming from Jesus.

    That is beautiful.

    Here's two things I thought you'd find interesting!

    Here's a link to a 1,000+MP image from Cape Canaveral!

    And here's audio recordings of Cassini/Huygens' decent into an alien atmosphere!
