Major major kudos to Alan, John and Space Enthusiast Richard Hendricks...don't know if I should be, but I'm sort of proud of that image.


Well, it probably wouldn't be there without your efforts in launching the board.

I think it's an inspiration in that, inasmuch as engineering this missions is a devilishly complex matter at lots of stages, some worthwhile results can come from an easily accessible level of knowledge. It's a nasty engineering process that doesn't recognize the difference and be open to the second. That's the message behind a lot of the ESA-directed complaints on this board, and of the downtrodden throughout history. The cry of the unrecognized talent saying, "Hey, I can do this!"

It's a great image for that reason and for the reasons the retina sees immediately. It's got a little of that Apollo 8 earthrise feel for me.

Yes, thanks to Doug, UMSF and Hendric in particular for making this possible! The LORRI image that goes along with this should be equally spectacular, of course, though I don't think we get that down for a while. Especially cool for me personally is the fact that the picture was taken on my 50th birthday.

Thanks too to Emily for her nice writeup on her blog.

This is such a great community we have here- I'm proud to be a part of it.

Happy birthday, john_s. A significant milestone, but your peak is yet to come. Keep going strong! wheel.gif

Nice. I hope you are getting lots of copies to show folks. Magical.

I myself have been printing copies of that picture to show to my friends. It is very beautiful in my opinion.
