The striking launch of a satellite

Illustration for article titled The striking launch of a satellite

Here’s a wonderful photo from the US Navy showing their launch of a Mobile User Objective System communications satellite. The US Navy says the picture shows “a 5-meter payload fairing lifts off from Space Launch Complex-41”. I say the picture looks like it perfectly captures the idea of shooting for the stars.

You missed using the let to rise sun catching the engine plume money shot in the launch video. Very Gundam 00 opening.
