    For anyone interested in NASA and the Space Station...

    Here is a website that has some GREAT Hi-res pics of the Space Station in orbit with the Earth as a backdrop:

    Space Station pics

    Just click the link, and then click on any picture. When it takes you to the picture, click the "high res" link underneath, then click the picture ONE more time, and you'll see what I mean...

    I'm a huge space and science geek, and I thought they were some cool pictures - AMAZING the amount of detail they show - down to every bolt, wire and doohickey!

    Shock, you have to make your way down to Housotn sometime to visit JSC. I have been their like 4 times in the last 3 years, when ever relatives come down that is onw place we take them. The best part of JSC is the tour or mission control. You are sitting in the same room some of the presidents sat in while watching launch and flight activities from some of the very first mission. It is worth the admission.

    JSC is quite a local term here in Houston = Johnson Space Center

    Cool Shock! I love that stuff too. You gotta look at them in high res.

    There is a NASA center here and I am going to look into it once I am done with school. I think it would be kinda a neat place to work.

    That's one of my goals in life - to visit the JSC and Cape Canaveral in Florida...

    THIS one is probably my favorite - just taken with the backdrop of Earth makes you realize how insignificant we all are in the universe...

    Coolest one...
