The future of US manned space flight.

Like it or not, this is probably the view US astronauts will see of their ride when the shuttle is retired.  Probably sometime in 2011 from the looks of the mission shuffling.  This photo is from the recent launch to the ISS with Doug Wheelock, Shannon Walker and Fyodor Yurchikhin on board. 
Note: The photo I had up here showed a view from the bottom of the Soyuz rocket looking up.  The link vanished from Twitpics, but if I find it again, I'll re-post.
