At shuttle speed, who the fu*ck wants to see outside anyway?? (Apart from the ill-advised bat hanging onto the foam on the last mission) I'd wet my pants if I looked out of the Shuttle window, - for scientific reasons, of course, just to see how the newly installed piss^Wcoffee filter works.

Bullshit

I'm tired of hearing about the manned spaceflight soap opera. WTF are these people actually accomplishing by going back and forth from that aging clunker of a space station? De-orbit the fucking thing into the Pacific, and lets be done with this colossal failure.

It looks like there might be more than one photographer, the other five astronauts all looking in the same direction. Embarrassing for an official picture of course. :-)
