I admit, I download every launch and landing photo from KSC Media Archive, every shuttle mission. I have for some time. It’s gotten to the point where I can tell if they’re not done uploading the pictures to the gallery yet, because this or that angle is missing.
Yes, I’m admitting just how nerdy I am, shut up with the laughing already. I’m not about to tell you “it all looks the same”, but there are recognizable angles, camera locations, etc. When a NEW view appears, like the landing photo above, I’m thrilled to bits!
Sadly, this may very well be Atlantis’ last mission. All good things come to an end… still, I root for her, that she might have one last hurrah with the spare ET/SRBs we’ll have left over. Time will tell!
