this one has been brought up before. can't remember what the outcome was but I remember someone pointing out the huge nuts and bolts flanging the top to the bottom part. definetely man made.
the bottom also looks like it needs to be flanged to something else, it has bolt holes around the perimeter of the skirt. also alot of weld seams are visible this beast is man made. prolly the top of some ballistic missile.

No, it's not a flying saucer, it is the domed top to a 70 foot long vacuum tank at the Lewis Research Center's Electric Propulsion Laboratory, Cleveland, Ohio. The three technicians shown here in protective clothing had just emerged from within the tank where they had been cleaning in the toxic mercury atmosphere, left after ion engine testing in the tank. Lewis has since been renamed the John H. Glenn Research Center. grin.hq.nasa.gov...

Dan --

No offense intended here, but a description of that object can be found on the exact website from which you linked that photograph in your OP. Granted, there are quite a few pictures on that site, but it took me less than 20 minutes to find that image and its description (the one posted by FredT).

A good starting point to find info on an image is to go to the "home page" of the website from which the images is linked -- in this case grin.hq.nasa.gov (simply drop the /IMAGES/LARGE/...etc after the ".gov" part in the address bar) -- then serching for the image from there.

No worries! I didn't mean to make you feel bad; just trying to help out the next guy who can't identify a photo.
