What is it that was captured in the sight made with Earth's edge & Shuttle's wing? ...Moon? ...or... Dream? :-)

Oh, yes, let's nurture the love for adventure & spread the fascination of space! ...I tend to overdo the enthusiasm for space with my poor students...they graciously tolerate me, though =)
