This should give you a good idea about how big the external tank and SRBs are. Here, I was standing on the MLP (Mobile Launch Platform) Posted by Hello

This looks like a hot dog.

Cool pic, I have seen several plans to use the large fuel tank:

Over the years the hundreds of them sent into space could have been refurbished and assembled into low cost - ultra high volume space station hubs.

Oh well.. :( I guess I cant expect a government run program to be efficient or think outside the box...

I hope on the main tank, it says "1". At first glance I thought it was some masking tape. Hope not!

Wow! What a great photo of the boosters! I live in Utah and have visited the Thiokol site where the SRB's are developed and tested but I don't think I've ever seen a photo that show's them in such dramatic fashion. Thanks for sharing your photos and your experiences!
