A photograph of Space Shuttle shooting out above the clouds was actually taken from an airplane, not from the International space station as many claim in social media.
According to fact checkers. The photograph of Space Shuttle Endeavour emerging from the clouds on 16 May 2011 was taken from a shuttle training aircraft and was not copyrighted.
Fact checkers claim “The image can be matched with similar images of the same shuttle plume taken below the clouds. Hot glowing gasses expelled by the engines are visible near the rising shuttle, as well as a long smoke plume. A shadow of the plume appears on the cloud deck, indicating the direction of the Sun”
That explains the photo was not taken from the International Space Station orbiting at earth at 7.66km/s at an altitude of 408 km.
Photographs like this could have been snapped from any airplane that happened to be in the right place at the right time.
