This photo of has getting a bit of attention lately and rightly so – it’s something straight off of a 90s-era science fiction book cover. Post-cyberpunk optimism was back for a bit before blowing apart into lots of little subgenres.
But I have always liked this photo of Endeavour back on STS-123 in 2008. No posed photo-op here, just a photo of a work truck complete with a clipboard and iPod left on the dashboard. Only thing missing here is a old cup of coffee and a badly-folded map but I suspect the astronauts have that covered.
