A 35mm still camera located in the umbilical well of the Space Shuttle Columbia took this photograph of the external fuel tank (ET) after it was dropped from the launch stack as the shuttle headed for Earth-orbit on Jan. 9, 1990 for the STS-32 mission. Several large divots are visible near the forward ET/orbiter bipod and smaller divots are visible on the H2 tank acreage. The vertical streak and the horizontal bands were the results of repairs done prior to launch.
