i want to go up there

…but i can't :-(

that's why i love the NASA picture archive [nasa.gov], because you could at least get a glimpse of how it would be out there.

the pics taken by the astronauts are usually of supreme quality, in composition as well as in story telling. i think these guys (and girls) KNOW they are having a look for us all…

with the current work on the international space station going on, this picture shows you some interesting detail of the thing - for your convenience, i cut out some of it for a closer look.

the picture in full resolution (and many more) is here [nasa.gov].

@midsummersilence: thanks for the link! i was not aware of this!

however, i might want to give this a pass, because it sounds like one of these odd science project that tires to replace the real thing through some model or test or protected environment for "studies"... and i fell too much like a guinea pig on this blog here, already! ;-)

Yes, rating the shuttle in hp seems a bit oxymoronish. But who can relate to 34MN? (Mega Newton)
BTW, check out my blog on June 14 for a photo from a bit farther away. http://www.photoblog.com/user/blur911/2007/06/14/

@artbug: now, [b]mars[/b], that's a completely different issue. we're talking over 1 year travel time there, staying for AT LEAST 1 year and then 1 year going back... i'm not sure if i would be up to THAT kind of business travel... ;-)

but i would be glad if you could send the link anyway - i'm a total space nut and interested in all of this info! :-)

@blur911: yeah i frequent NASA TV too, but they blocked it at my office unfortunately (probably because of bandwith problems). as for the measurement: looks odd to me to compare a rocket to xxx "horse"power - don't you think?

@fuknhedcase: since you're vocabulary is limited, you should at least try to learn correct spelling before i talk to you again! :-)

@ oc_unidentifiednumber: your little typo gives this song a complete new meaning... ;-)

I believe you work too much!?
You should urgently take vacation. However, do not fly too high, my friend ...

I've been watching NASA TV, live video of everything they've been doing.
Did you know the Space shuttle has about 190,000,000 horsepower at liftoff? Love that stuff.
