Beautiful pic! Can you imagine what we could achieve a century from now? Space travel, Mars colony, etc. Exciting time, too bad we won't be able to see it.

^Weird photo, that last one. It seems normal enough, a woman lying on the windowsill resting her head in her hand. Then you remember in zero-G you can't lean on anything, let alone lie on it, and resting your head in your hand is completely pointless. It's a nice illusion, but the woman had to go to some effort for it to appear as "natural" as it does.

Has anyone found a large black monolith hidden here? If not someone should start digging.

Welcome to Skyscraper City. Lots of different things to see, read and argue about. In a civil manner, of course.
