      Great pictures Bill, I enjoyed watching you guys on NASA TV last night. Are these jpegs right out of the D3S or did you process them before uploading. If so I'd love to know what your typical processing flow is.

      We would like to use this image on Wikipedia, but would need a waiver from the noncommercial restriction ie. need a CC-BY-30 license. If this is possible please contact me at

      Also I believe as a work of NASA and the Federal Government isn't it in the Public Domain, or is there a special restriction on these images? Thanks for clarification.
