As you all know ATV was destroyed on re-entry over the pacific yesterday. And team of scientists on a DC-8 aircraft managed to take some pictures of the burning space craft, and it is online at the ESA website, and the image is amazing, especially the pyrotechnics surrounding the space craft and the colours created by it.


See, for yourself,

Hope you enjoyed that.
