Today was the last dark launch for the space shuttle. Only 2 launches left in the shuttle program. I had to get up at 5:30 this morning and drive up to where I could photograph this with water in front for the reflection. It launched at 6:21 am. Awesome sight to witness. I love Florida

This is about 200+ miles away from the launch site, Awesome

Endeavour atop Nasa's 747 flies over Dockweiler Beach State Park, California.

Editor's note: happy Friday, Flickr friends! While we can't all get this kind of sky view, hope you get to enjoy the waning gibbous moon in the skies over Earth this weekend.

 

This image taken by an astronaut aboard Space Shuttle mission STS-103 shows a panoramic view of Earth at moonrise.

The Solid fuel rockets fall away and are collected out at sea for re-use. The Shuttle is now entering orbit and reaching 17500 mph. 90 minutes from now it will be overhead again having completed its first orbit............ I will not have left the car park.

How fast does a Space Shuttle travel? What is its altitude? How much fuel does it use?

A. Like any other object in low Earth orbit, a Shuttle must reach speeds of about 17,500 miles per hour (28,000 kilometers per hour) to remain in orbit. The exact speed depends on the Shuttles orbital altitude, which normally ranges from 190 miles to 330 miles (304 kilometers to 528 kilometers) above sea level, depending on its mission. Each of the two solid rocket boosters on the Shuttle carries more than one million pounds of solid propellant. The Shuttles large external tank is loaded with more than 500,000 gallons of supercold liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen, which are mixed and burned together to form the fuel for the Shuttles three main rocket engines.

Here's another one I did....(not)

The space shuttle Endeavour is seen on launch pad 39a as a storm passes by prior to the rollback of the Rotating Service Structure (RSS), Thursday, April 28, 2011, at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla. During the 14-day mission, Endeavour and the STS-134 crew will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) and spare parts including two S-band communications antennas, a high-pressure gas tank and additional spare parts for Dextre.

I tried this for the first time.

I ACTUALLY tried it.

The final launch of Shuttle Atlantis STS-135. This was taken with a remote camera donated to The Last Shuttle Project by Sony. We rig the remote cameras with sound triggers that start recording when they hear the roar of the engines firing up.

Wiki: The Space Shuttle Enterprise was the first Space Shuttle built for NASA. It was constructed without engines or a functional heat shield, and was therefore not capable of space operations; its purpose was to perform test flights in the atmosphere.

This was about to lift off as I was leaving Cozumal. I assume it is their entry into the space shuttle replacement race...

Was quite the experience to behold this piece of history today.

Well, since NASA is having difficulty launching Endeavour into orbit, I'll go back to March and show a scene from Discovery. I had hoped that this moment would occur. The launch was several minutes after sunset, so during the ascent, the space shuttle reentered daylight. What a view!

Sunrise from the Space Shuttle Atlantis in orbit around the Earth.

This picture is built out of photographs I've taken over the last year.

 

Some from the Kennedy Space Center, others from Iceland and some in Manchester. Then slowly brought together to create this view from space.

Thanks to everyone who helped me with this image. Art & Algorithms Festival in Titusville Florida - Brenda, Marcia and Clifton. NASA, Kennedy Space Center(if you ever get the chance to visit do, the Atlantis is displayed beautifully). Heidrun in Iceland(The Northern Lights). Naomi, Mum and Chris Wareing for thoughts and advice, plus where to find the stars.

 

The only element which I did not photograph was the field of stars which I created from many of screen grabs from Stellarium. I used it to show what the stars looked like directly above the landing strip at the Kennedy Space Center when the Atlantis landed for the last time.

The Space Shuttle came to Los Angeles on Sept 21. One of the flbys was very close to where I was. I can't believe I chopped off a bit from the end of the best shot. Anyway, pretty cool to see it so close.

Doing a fly-by on the back of the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) at LAX.

In early 2001 during a launch of Atlantis, the Sun, Earth, Moon, and rocket were all properly aligned for this photogenic coincidence. First, for the space shuttle's plume to cast a long shadow, the time of day must be either near sunrise or sunset. Next, just at sunset, the shadow is the longest and extends all the way to the horizon. Finally, during a Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the sky. Just after sunset, for example, the Sun is slightly below the horizon, and, in the other direction, the Moon is slightly above the horizon. Therefore, as Atlantis blasted off, just after sunset, its shadow projected away from the Sun toward the opposite horizon, where the Full Moon just happened to be.

 

The Space Shuttle Endeavour is on its last flight today before it retires in a Los Angeles museum.

 

According to the SF Chronicle, "during 25 missions, Endeavour spent 299 days in space and orbited Earth nearly 4,700 times, racking up 123 million miles." :

It literally flew over my house in Bernal Heights, San Francisco around 10:30am today!

 

I got really lucky with this shot. I was standing on the roof of my condo expecting it to come from the north but instead it came over from the west; I swung around just in time.

 

This photo was taken with a Canon 40D with a 100-400mm lens and a 1.4x extender (and I still cropped it).
