NASA Nikon by mekea

Thought this would be interesting to all of you fellow photographers out there!! :)) Quotes from under this display…

“No American reached space between 1975 and the first Space Shuttle mission in 1981. As launch day for STS-1 approached, Americans discovered the excitement of space flight all over again. When Columbia lifted off, American’s pride rode with her.”

“News photographer Ralph Morse planted an automatic camera 100 yards from Columbia the night before launch. The camera snapped pictures of the Shuttle’s explosive liftoff until shockwaves smashed it.”
