Space Station 1984

Been a hot minute since I lifted a picture from Mike Acs’ Flickr page without accreditation or adding anything of my own. Today: a shockingly beautiful late-career work by Ted Brown.

SRB Separation

The solid-rocket boosters (SRB’s) are separated during ascent when Space Shuttle is about 28 miles (45 km) above the earth. Landing in the ocean, the SRB’s are recovered, refurbished and reused. Propelled by it’s three own engines, Shuttle continues its climb with increasing velocity.
