  1. The photo of the Space Shuttle seems to be a fake. Look at the shadows in the Shuttle compared to the shadows on the Glaciers. They are opposite. How could they be??

    • The sun appears to be just to the right of the top of the image both on the glaciers and the shuttle. Perhaps you think the shadows on the shuttle show the sun from below? If so, look again.
