Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) "Atlantis" trails vapor and causes her own cloud effect as she continues through her energy management system that bleeds of the excess speeds prior to the 200+ MPH engine off touchdown. Here she is in the 2nd heading alignment cylinder with tail brake open. As it nears the landing site, the orbiter is steered into the nearest of two heading alignment circles called HACs. Each has a radius of 18,000 ft. The orbiter is now in subsonic flight, at 49,000 ft., and about 22 mile from its touchdown point.

Remark
Photographer
OV-103 (cn OV-103) At dusk, a strange looking convoy leaves the KSC Shuttle Landing strip and heads towards the heart of KSC at a crawl. A tractor tow vehicle pulls Discovery along a two mile tow-way from the SLF to the Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF), a structure similar in design to a sophisticated aircraft hangar, where processing Discovery for another flight begins. Note the texture of the orbiter's surface in the unusual green lighting of the convoy. A few hours ago, she was on fire and plunging to Earth.

Remark
Photographer
OV-103 (cn OV-103) Orbital vehicle "Discovery" sits attached to her fuel tank (orange) and two solid rocket boosters (white) while the crew access arm is fixed. The "white room" is clearly seen here. Also, the fuel lines that run down the tank and enter the orbiter by the rear gear doors is seen. It is sunrise on the first launch day (scrub due to clouds at KSC during launch window which would have prevented an abort to the KSC runway hence the "no go"). STS - 116 mission to the ISS. [Canon 1Ds Mk II]

Remark
Photographer
OV-103 (cn OV-103) "On be half of the whole crew, we want to thank you, your launch team and all the men and women working on the NASA team, you're all going to be with us tonight going to orbit. We look forward to lighting up the night sky and rewiring ISS. See you in a few weeks!" said by CDR Mark Polansky. This photograph was taken the moment after the launch when the Discovery starts the roll program. As it turned out to be my first night launch photography, as you can see, it seems that I could capture something!

Remark

OV-104 (cn OV-104) "Atlantis" sits on Pad 39B the night before the second scrub. She is primed and ready to go on STS-115. The RSS structure just rolled back unveiling her. Atlantis, the fourth orbiter to become operational at Kennedy Space Center, was named after the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts from 1930 to 1966. Note the ground crew still on the mobile platform putting the finishing touches using a crane.
