AM I MISS SOMETHING HERE. Just because surprised with the voting.
Great work, krrish... You perfectly blended the shuttle - size, perspective, texture (some higher placed images surprisingly missed these points) - and all you got, well... really deserves a higher rank.
Hi tom, How are you. How is life going on. yes i have been observing this from the last 1 - 3 months. I don't understand the voting. I really don't care about voting but when a good image has least voting then i am bothering about . Anyway thanks to support me tom. I hope, you also come to the game.
Oh, I'm watching every day, sometimes looking for sources, rarely chopping with them... I hope I'm in soon back in the game.
Bad news from NASA this week - it is ending its Space Shuttle program and laying off thousands of employees.
NASA will only launch two more Shuttles, one on November 1, and another on February 26 next year.
NASA is also being forced to cancel its Constellation program after the Senate passed a bill last week, which limits NASA's spending to $58 billion over the next three years. The Constellation project intended to send astronauts to the International Space Station, the Moon, and Mars, but Obama wanted the plans canceled as part of attempts to address the global economic crisis.
To pay a tribute to the Space Shuttle program (which lasted almost 40 years and provided a pathway for space exploration), show the Shuttles integrated into promotional products, household items, architecture, movie posters, paintings, paintjobs, etc.
To celebrate the launch, show the Discovery shuttle integrated into promotional products, household items, movie posters, paintings, paintjobs, etc. Alternatively, make astronauts out of figures in famous paintings.
