I had no idea such a thing was visible from earth ! Sometimes feel such a mug for sitting here in england paying a mortgage and getting bogged down by financial drama and political sleaze.

Amazing pictures. Check out the last photo - is the woman's necklace floating due to zero-gravity?

I wish I was an astronaut, it has to be the best job. Seems to be the only thing with even a hint of adventure left in it.

Thw world looks so peaceful and clean from up there, you can't even tell we are here.

Very jealous!

I am surprised you are all taken in.
They are all fakes made in a Hollywood back lot.

Trust someone to come along and spoil it! :devil::D


Was just looking thru the pics again and came upon the one near the bottom showing the view of the cockpit....doesn't it look very low tech?

I know the shuttles are getting old but just looks ordinary compared to say, the cockpit of a modern airliner but the big difference is one goes into space!

Someway reminds me of what the inside of a old russian fighter plane looks like.

Amazing photo's! Very exciting stuff! Photo's taken a week ago in space from a space ship and I'm sitting on my sofa in my lounge looking at them!!!

Not sure about the last picture though, talk a bout the wrong stuff!

The picture (i think) you might have be referring to is actually of the controls for the cargo bay (controlling operation of the doors and remote manipulator system) the flight deck is not in any of the pictures as far as i can see so I think the image has been mislabelled.

Wow, thats more like it!

TBH have never seen the flight deck before in the shuttle so the mis-labelled pic didn't help.

Anyone know what salary an astronaut gets? Nevermind found the info on NASA website:

Q. What is an astronaut's salary?
A. Salaries for civilian Astronaut Candidates are based on the Federal Government's General Schedule pay scale for grades GS-12 through GS-13. Each person's grade is determined according to his/her academic achievements and experience. Currently, a GS-12 starts at $65,140 per year and a GS-13 can earn up to $100,701 per year.

Worth every cent!
