A couple of more launches and that thing is gonna look like a NASCAR vehicle. I see Canada has already gotten into the game with some advertising space

(no pun intended)

Nice pics. Thanks PlbMak

Canada logo

We are an approved supplier of the fabric in many of the pictures , called Beta cloth, This material covers much of the space station as well as the "Canada Arm" . This arm was made in Canada under contract from NASA. Several earlier arms were used on earlier shuttle missions, prior to the existence of the Space Station

The "CANADA" can hardly be called advertising. It just tell NASA where to buy parts for the arm

I wonder what Mega Pixel that camera was...?

P.S. Japanese business men are already inquiring into including time share condominiums on the space station.

When these pictures first came out and you rolled your mouse pointer over the image, the image number came up, in cyrillic. They must have been taken with a Russian camera on the ISS.

Excellent! Superb! What more can one say.

It is unfortunate that most of the world does not get to see pictures like this.

They are great photos.

I've always wondered what it would be like to do a space walk.

Must be a little scary but at the same time WOW.

Fantastic pics PlbMak thanks for sharing.

Couldn't agree more unclefastguy and did you notice that there is no supply or exhaust ducting to our atmosphere, or any gigantic fans. What we have is what we have got and it's time we started to help look after it and clean it up............and believe you me I ain't no greenie.
