Before Dex left NASA, he invited Leslie and I to go behind the scenes and check out some really cool things that most people never see. I was able to spend time in the shuttle simulator, which blew my mind. Here are some photos from my experience:

The image I found most haunting was taken of Israel, Syria, the Sinai...it looked so beautiful and peaceful from afar but knowing of all the pain, hatred and bloodshed in those regions throughout history gave me chills.  Powerful. Eleanor

The images are wonderfully atmospheric, especially considering there was not much atmosphere around.  ;D

Tee hee.

Great article.

This article blows my mind. 

I have always been fascinated by space and space travel (hard core Star Trek fan). However I never thought about photographing in space until I read this article. Now I want to go up there more than ever and bring my camera!

These photos are just amazing. They are really inspiring. I have to say, they make me think, "are my images really that compelling? Is there a unique subject matter or environment I haven't captured that I would like to?"

Now someone needs to hurry up and invent warp drive so we can photograph in other solar systems!

Once again, blows my mind.

Yesterday we lost our good friend Captain Alan Poindexter in a tragic jet ski accident. My thoughts are with Lisa and their two sons. More information can be found here:

Heavens. Sitting here across the other side of the world in New Zealand I saw the the headline in our local paper and didn't make the connection.
Condolences to his family and friends and his sons are in our prayers.
