'Perils of Patrol Work in "No-Man's-Land"', First World War, 1915-1916, (c1920)

'Perils of Patrol Work in "No-Man's-Land"', First World War, 1915-1916, (c1920). 'British patrol hiding from the glare of one of the German light-producing rockets...The only chance for the patrol caught by this light-shell rocket from the German trenches was to lie face downwards, in the hope that they might escape the watching eyes along the enemy's line...The rockets showed comparatively little light during their flight, but then burst with a dazzling glare, making the "No-Man's-Land" between the trenches as light as day.' From "The Great World War: A History", Volume V, edited by Frank A Mumby. [The Gresham Publishing Company Ltd, London, c1920]

Rocket booster recovery, second Space Shuttle flight, November 1981. Creator: NASA

Rocket booster recovery, second Space Shuttle flight, November 1981. The rocket booster is recovered from the sea. The space shuttle's solid rocket boosters were reusable. After a shuttle launch, the casings were recovered from the Atlantic Ocean and towed back to NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The expended boosters were disassembled, refurbished and reloaded with solid propellant for reuse on another shuttle mission. The Space Shuttle program, (official name, Space Transportation System or STS), was the fourth human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which accomplished routine Earth-to-orbit transport for crew and cargo between 1981 and 2011.
