L-1: one day to launch, for the fourth time

In this blog I would like to photographically document the launch activities for the Space Shuttle Programme, which will come to an end this year. The day before a launch, accredited media representatives are allowed to set up their cameras at the launch site, in close proximity to the Space Shuttle. Of course, the cameras positioned here cannot be operated ‘live’, but must be activated at the right moment by an automated system; time, sound or vibration triggers are usually employed. Once the cameras are set up, fingers are kept crossed for a timely lift-off, as well as correct functioning of the photographic equipment. If all goes well with my equipment, I will post the images of the launch here. It will be worth your while to visit this page again after the launch.

For an optimal display of the images, use the full-screen mode. When in this mode select ‘Show Info’ to display the image captions. If you do not have Flash, click here.
