World’s Tallest Rocket Blasting Off

whee-blastoff

A simply brilliant shot of the world’s tallest rocket on its way out of here.

You’re looking at the 253.2-foot Delta 4-Heavy lifting off from launch complex 37B at Cape Canaveral, and yes, that’s actually a photograph. Good thing the camera was remotely triggered by photographer Ben Cooper, who used sound activation to snap this shot while he was safely ensconced 3 miles away.We feel sorry for that camera, though, whose lens was destroyed. The good news is, the camera itself somehow survived this hellish inferno as the world’s tallest unmanned rocket roared away from its launchpad.
