Found the above forced-perspective shot here (along with another shuttle-related photo which I am uh, *not* going to post here, but it’s snicker-worthy. You’ll know it when you see it.) Thought I’d post some fun/interesting pictures today, because it is Friday, after all!
This next one is a long exposure of the Expedition 22 Soyuz rollout, and you know how much I LOVE long-exposure/night photography:
The Soyuz TMA-17 spacecraft is seen in this long exposure as it is rolled out by train to the launch pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, Friday, Dec. 18, 2009. The launch of the Soyuz spacecraft with Expedition 22 NASA Flight Engineer Timothy J. Creamer of the U.S., Soyuz Commander Oleg Kotov of Russia and Flight Engineer Soichi Noguchi of Japan, is scheduled for Monday, Dec., 21, 2009 at 3:52a.m. Kazakhstan time.

And finally, Etherbrian introduced me to these lovely ladies with their remarkable futuristic fashions!
I’d love to know what this is from, if someone on the Intarwebs knows: Update: They hail from the 1970s British show UFO, a precursor to Space: 1999.
