50 years of Human Spaceflight
This coming week sees the 50th anniversary of human spaceflight! If you’re interested and do a bit of a scrounge around most tech and gadget site’s you will find stories all about mankind’s adventures into space. The particular one I’ve chosen to share with you is mostly just for the photo.
We all know what the planet looks like from space, but more often then not the images we see are from NASA. Popular space photographs of nebula, the moon or distant galaxy’s are generally associated with the Hubble Space Telescope. It came as a bit of a surprise that they aren’t the only ones out there in space taking a few happy snaps of cute comets sailing by. The Russians are at it as well! I’m not sure about you but I find their significantly less saturated image of our planet just that little bit more realistic, and just a little bit more fascinating. It feels more like an image an ordinary person could take (if they put a fishbowl on their head upside down, built a spaceship out of an old fridge box and wore their cricket whites while taking bounding steps through the yard at age 10)…
Anyway for those of you eager to see the image here it is (click on it to view it in its full glory, and click the link below to read the full story).
Yours to infinity, and beyond!
