The Flight of the Falcon

Artist note: In this NASA photograph taken in Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California, Jan 1969, you see the HL-10 research plane on the left, it is a lifting body concept used in a study for a reusable manned spacecraft. Eventually, at the end of this line of studies, there was the Space Shuttle. The recent events with Star Wars VII (the X-wing revelation) and the 45th anniversary of the Moon landing prompted me to do something different from my usual photostream. Celebrating both Star Wars and the Human Spaceflight, I added a little twist to this photo.
