Yeah, but at least the Muslim world feels better about themselves now.

Fantastic pictures. Did you collect all those from online sources? I wish you had captions for all of them.

Some things you never can forget. I remember some fuddy duddy news anchor back around the time the shuttle and space station came along, cheerfully trumpeting that NASA would no longer be looking outward but would now be looking back towards “our home”. (Unicorns, butterflies and all). I knew right then that NASA was going to become just another useless government agency spreading 60s hippy propaganda. I was right. I just never saw the Muzzie Self Esteem thing coming.

And how does this help NASA’s primary mission of promoting the virtues of Islam?

Where are the Muslim Outreach photos?

Oh, that’s right. They didn’t start until 2009.

“We should have been to Mars buy a least 1985.”

Exactly but we were too busy throwing wealth down a rat hole and training the worlds most worthless man, the civil rights attorney, instead of aerospace engineers.

Nice picture. Just wondering: where’s the shadow of the flag and flagstick?

Funny you should ask that. I remember a Mythbusters episode a while back that went over this very kind of thing. They demonstrated how the uneven ground, given a point light source (the sun) can cause a number of optical illusions with regard to the shadows, especially when the ground appears flat in the picture. If we use the picture I posted as an example, a small bump in the ground by the astronaut's feet, from the vantage point of the photographer, would appear as flat ground because the photographer can't see the depression behind it, although the depression could contain the shadow of something like the flag pole. Or something like that.

With regards to this picture, I'd say the shadow of the flag pole is to the right of the pole, but has the appearance of going to the 2 o'clock position rather than the 3 o'clock position of the astronaut's shadow.

Well, the US space agency’s problems included Eisenhower, Mondale, Proxmire, &c.

Sort of an early "Iron Man" thing going on with the circular disk over the astronaut's chest.

It’s a shame, today. The History Channel has an hour or 2 special on what has come out of the Space Program. Since the muzzies are stuck in the 11th century, I don’t expect much in the future.

Why is the astronauts shadow cast to the left and the flags to the right?

Actually, the circular thing on Gus’s chest is a mirror. A camera inside the capsule would be focused on the mirror that would reflect images of the exterior of the capsule through the view port window.

All the shadows are to the right. What you see to the left of the flag pole is probably the shadow of something out of frame on the left side.
