STS078-457-006 (20 June 1996) --- One of the first still pictures recorded by the crew members was this 35mm image of the External Fuel Tank (ET) soon after being jettisoned on launch day. The mission, less than ten minutes old when this picture was made, went on to set a Space Shuttle duration record of almost seventeen-days in Earth-orbit. The Indian Ocean forms the backdrop for the image.
