STS-1 at night[edit]

A timed exposure of the first Space Shuttle mission, STS-1, at Launch Pad A, Complex 39, turns the space vehicle and support facilities into a night-time fantasy of light. To the left of the Shuttle are the fixed and the rotating service structures.

This is one of the finest pictures of Space Shuttle Columbia from its first mission. It is featured on the page for mission STS-1, taken by Kennedy Space Center crew and added by Triddle. - Kitch 17:17, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Support. Awesome. -- BRIAN0918  01:59, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Weak support. Seems small a bit grainy... like someone used a scanner. -- AllyUnion (talk) 08:40, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, although I must say I am suprised its not already a featured picture. TomStar81 09:12, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Weak support, its a great picture, but perhaps not better than Image:Shuttle.jpg which is already featured. There are quite a few excellent space launch images from NASA. I wouldn't want to see them all in Featured Pictures, so we might want to consider whether we want two shots of the same mission. -- Solipsist 09:40, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Excellent photo, very dramatic. --Fir0002 10:00, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Hi-res version is quite grainy. My hamfisted attempts to clean it up were unsatisfactory; is anyone with a bit more competence willing to try? —Korath (Talk) 19:09, Mar 20, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Slight cleanup would be nice, yes, but necessary. James F. (talk) 23:05, 22 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, looks great to me. --Spangineer 02:51, Mar 23, 2005 (UTC)
  • To counter objections of graininess, I've sharpened the photo somewhat. JoJan 15:46, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)
