Today’s Photo: Belly of the Shuttle

Being a fan of flight and more so, space flight, I was fascinated by my visit to the space shuttle at the Udvar-Hazy portion of the Air and Apace museum.  I took several photos from the front of the space shuttle, but could not get enough of all the small details of this unique flying ship.  I shot this one of the ceramic composite tiles across the belly of the shuttle.  It is a true tribute to human ingenuity that someone could devise this process of adding thousands of tiles to an airplane to make it safe to reenter the atmosphere.
