Discovery Orbiter Anaglyph


Explanation:

Approaching
the International Space Station on STS-121
in July,
the Shuttle Orbiter Discovery posed for a series of photographs.

The process was part of an inspection to check for damage
to the orbiter,
but against the backdrop of
planet Earth 300 kilometers below,
the pictures themselves are stunning.

Stereo artist Patrick Vantuyne has combined two of them
(ISS013e48787 and
ISS013e48788)
to produce this dramatic 3D image.

The stereo
anaglyph
is intended to be viewed with red/blue glasses.

Details
visible along the forward fuselage include
high temperature (black) and low temperature (white)
insulation tiles,
thrusters used for steering and attitude
control, and crew compartment windows.
