Launch

What an amazing photo:

An external high-definition camera on the International Space Station captured the launch plume of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket after it had ascended to Earth orbit following its liftoff on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2023, from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The space station was flying 262 miles above the Atlantic Ocean just after an orbital sunset at the time of this photograph.

Via.

    All other things being equal – you met the qualifications – would you want to go into space?

    I would love to…but I’d be, quite honestly, scared shitless. Interesting question….

    To me, the photo is an good example of reality being more beautiful and amazing than (science) fiction 🙂
