zephyr illusions photo by donna October 1992. The view atop Chasseral, Jura Mountains looking across Switzerland to The Alps on the horizon. Fog, intensely thick, rising from Lac Bienne and stretching its fingers high onto the Lignières-Plateau de Diesse after wholly filling the valley below the plateau.

'k, no more jokes about bad women drivers!

"Discovery was just 600 feet beneath the station when Commander Eileen Collins manually steered the shuttle's nose up and slowly flipped the spacecraft over."

even though reported to be unprecedented, i wonder if Commander Collins, the first woman pilot of a Space Shuttle, had practiced this manoeuver during training sessions? sure sounds like awesome flying to me.
