Photography in Space
« on: April 19, 2012, 06:44:20 PM »

This article (and others) demonstrates why, IMHO, Luminous Landscape is the best photography site on the Internet.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

It didn't take much convincing to get my friend, Alan, to write the article for LL. We have spoken about it quite a bit over the last couple of years, but never got around to getting the article done.

+1 as they say. I was surprised to see this article. The images are wonderfully atmospheric, especially considering there was not much atmosphere around.  ;D

Andy and Michael,

Thank you! These photographs by Captain Poindexter are just magnificent. And of course very timely as well. I was at the Udder-Hazy center yesterday for the ceremony transferring the Discovery to the Smithsonian. The appreciative crowd was huge, and I hoped that meant something to the astronauts who were there participating in the ceremony. I wonder if Captain Poindexter or any of his crew in any of these photos? http://s1140.photobucket.com/albums/n561/billh96007/Discovery/ 

It was exciting to see the Discovery flying on the 747, and again up close, nose to nose with the Enterprise, but it was also very sad to see the end of our manned space exploration. Hopefully that will change in the future.

That one is truly incredible.  "Let's see...  I'll keep the entire universe absolutely still while ripping around the planet at thousands of kilometers per hour...."

Glad you did Andy...

It was really interesting to see not only the great space shots but also the candids that NASA prolly wouldn't make a big deal of. It's actually a bit of a melancholy time for NASA and the people who gave so much to the Space Shuttle over the years. I saw a 60-Minutes segment about what's happened to the areas in Florida near the space center...really sad to see. But it was also interesting to see the shuttle put on a 747 plane to fly to Washington. Ironically, I saw a Jeopardy episode there Final Jeopardy question was: what has been the most visited museum for 2010/2011? Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. I hope NASA still has some legs in the future...
