Shuttle Launch Seen From ISS

Comic book writer Warren Ellis has a shot of a space shuttle launch as seen from the International Space Station. Although it would've been cooler if there were more, with each one of the shuttle getting closer and closer. And then the last one would be a giant explosion as it crashes into the ISS, people screaming, and bodies everywhere. Totally rad, dude.

UPDATE: Although the shots are real, they were not taken from the International Space Station. A couple readers wrote in to point out they were actually taken from the NASA/JSC WB-57 High Altitude Research aircraft.
