Description

As the Space Shuttle era comes to an end we all remember the sacrifices and achievements of NASA and of our Astronauts. This graphic clock is a reminder of some of their contribution to the exploration of space. (there is a version specifically for iPad in iPad Utilities)
To create a graphic clock we have resurrected the Mir Space Station circling the earth every 12 hours with its rotational axis in the hour position. The International Space Station is circling the earth in 60 minutes with its rotational axis at the minutes position.
The Space Shuttle circles tirelessly in 60 seconds while the Hubble telescope remains rock solid capturing ultra deep field images of the cosmos (thanks in a large part to the Space Shuttle Hubble Repair and Service Missions).
The time depicted on the first image is about 7:03, the space stations are continuously rotating so it's easy to determine the centers of rotations.
Includes high resolution graphics for the gorgeous iPhone 4 display.

Note; We have taken liberties with scale & orbit altitudes to produce a visually pleasing clock.
Tech Center Labs has no affiliation with NASA other than a deep admiration of their achievements.
