Mission Plus 10 - Space Shuttle Print

The Space Shuttle Atlantis leaving Earth from Launch Pad 39B. Shortly after lift-off the shuttle begins a roll program to orient the shuttle orbiter on the underside of the fuel tank for the 8 minute journey into orbit. By flying this way, the forces on the vehicle and astronauts are lessened. My depiction shows the vehicle about half way through this maneuver. Scheduled to be retired in 2011 this print serves as a fine commemorative to the space shuttle and it's 30 years of service.

This is a fabulous piece. I saved it and used it as my desktop on my laptop at work. I've never seen anyone else capture this perspective of the launch! A favorite of mine!
