Tomorrow morning, July 21, at 5:56 a.m. EDT (09:56 GMT), the Space Shuttle Orbiter Atlantis is scheduled to set wheels down on Earth one last time. When it launched, though, pictures were taken as the rocket rolled that allowed Nathaniel Burton-Bradford to create a 3D red/cyan anaglyph:

[Click to enlaunchenate.] I posted another 3D image he made of Atlantis, too, and he has one of the ISS he just made as well. If you don't have red/cyan glasses, you can search for 'em online. They're pretty cheap, and I do sometimes link to pictures like this... like in Related Posts below. It's totally worth a buck, just for that moment of "wow". Credit: NASA, Nathanial Burton Bradford
