    Potentially. It is a solid rocket booster as you can see from the exhaust trail. Solid first stages are rare except for ICBMs. More likely US than russian though. The russians prefer mostly liquid propellant engines.

    Phobos, darkest known moon in the solar system, above Mars.


    (A person who weighs 68 kg (150 lb) on Earth would weigh about 60 g (2 oz) standing on the surface of Phobos.) A great place to weigh oneself.

    probably is but doesn't look big enough to stand on, though I guess balancing would be easy in space

    Great photo.

    Phobos has 22km diameter. Enough to stand on. But the gravity is so low if you stretch up from bended knees you may launch yourself into space away from Phobos.

    A beautiful collection.



    Never knew this existed. A leisurely daytrip from my home.

    Can't green you. Seems I don't spread it enough.

    I've actually been there. 'Twas very hot.

    I forgot to mention earlier, there were some fantastic photos in the long post of yours, jabir. A very nice collection.

    Crash dive of a Kingfisher. The photographer took this awesome pic of a diving kingfisher after six years and some 720,000 shots.
