Thanks for posting this, incredible images. Amazing how abstract the earth is from the station.

NASA contractors currently working on two more Mars rovers and also two deep space satellites. One of the deep space models will sweep by the two outter planets; the other will sweep by one of the two inner planets before eventually leaving the solar system. It would be interesting to see real quality photographs of our solar system from the outside

It looks like someone forgot to subtract some dark frames in photo #6.

Looks like an ad for Space Ship One. Hopefully space travel like this gets cheaper. Knowing my luck, it will not be in my lifetime or I will be either too old to be allowed up or too old to see.It would truly be frustrating if you found yourself just a few weeks older than the cutoff age to be allowed up in to space after saving the money for decades to be able to afford it.
