Some nice suggestions there. Well remembered on Capricorn 1 lol. But this craft DID get into space lol

The city is Hong Kong, and its showing an eclipse shadow bouncing of the all double glazing :)

And is it considered sad to know Star Trek nebulas by heart? ;)Kahhhhnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!

And Iapetus is not a loaf of bread, but a rather pretty moon around Saturn :p

It could be considered sadder that I had to look up the name of the Nebula on Google because I'd forgotten it. At one time, I could recite Khan's memorable - "He tasks me..." speech by heart. I'm slipping :o
