    As great as the photo is, it is probably better at home in aerospace engineering, as it really doesn't have much to do with actual astronomy.

    That is pretty sweet. Nice picture to say the least. Notice the underexpanded nozzles and the freeezing from all of the liquid hydrogen? Sweeeeet.

    You see a picture like that and can't imagine the incredibly complicated systems that are out of sight.

    Agreed. It wouldn't surprise me to see Boris' signature at the bottom.
