NASA image of the day 9/11/2001

Today's NASA image is a photo taken by the crew of Expedition 3 of the International Space Station as they flew over New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. For a larger view, or if the picture does not load, click on the caption and it will take you to the larger image with the comments of Commander Frank L. Culbertson ( As I recall how I felt as I watched the events unfold in the comfort of my home, I cannot imagine how the crew must have felt as they watched from the tiny space station so far above. I hope we all take time today to pause and remember the tragic events of that day and its aftermath and to pray for those lost, those who survive, and for peace on Earth.

  3. Thank you for sharing this image. The world will never be the same.

  4. Such things as this live in peoples' memories for a very long time. I wish everyone would work at creating rather than destroying. The world would be a much better place to live in.
