Printed on high quality, acid-free archival matte paper
The Space Shuttle Atlantis leaving Earth from Launch Pad 39B. Shortly after lift-off the shuttle begins a roll program to orient the shuttle orbiter on the underside of the fuel tank for the 8 minute journey into orbit. By flying this way, the forces on the vehicle and astronauts are lessened. Mark's depiction shows the vehicle about half way through this maneuver. Retired in 2011 this print serves as a fine commemoration to the Space Shuttle and it's 30 years of service.
