The STS-133 crew portrait:


Download high resolution.
Attired in training versions of their shuttle launch and entry suits, these six astronauts take a break from training to pose for the STS-133 crew portrait. Pictured are NASA astronauts Steve Lindsey (center right) and Eric Boe (center left), commander and pilot, respectively; along with astronauts (from the left) Alvin Drew, Nicole Stott, Michael Barratt and Tim Kopra, all mission specialists.

I think they should have went old school with the portrait: the plain blue backdrop, U.S. flag and NASA flag and a shuttle on the table. The photoshop has been used too much to me.

Nice crew portrait.

Like the poster. It has Star Trek the movie feel. The outline of that device they wore on the uniform appears with the earth.

Will the crew portrait change, now that Bowen has replaced Kopra for the mission?

It's not a new official crew portrait, but here is the first photo I have seen taken of the crew since Bowen replaced Kopra.

The photoshoppers have been out and about with this one. With such a tight schedule a new group photo probably wasn't high on their list of priorities. They have updated the mission press kit too.

It's about time that a modified portrait of the STS-133 came out!

It would be interesting to see comparisons between original crew portraits and portraits that were changed (photoshopped or completely retaken) due to scheduling, crew or payload replacement, etc. Aside from -133, other flights would include -86, -33, -51D, -42, etc.

The STS-133 astronauts posed for a new crew portrait after they returned from flying space shuttle Discovery's final mission.

Although the changes between STS133-S-002 and STS133-S-002A are subtle, the new portrait forgoes the earlier photoshopped substitution of Stephen Bowen for Tim Kopra and instead uses a new photograph taken of all six astronauts together.

Somebody should do a gag version of the crew picture where it also has the life sized stand-in picture of Kopra in his blue flight suit in the picture as well since he was there (in spirit) in a mid-deck locker.

Did they ever alter the 133 poster?

My bet is that there are not going to be many of the new portrait printed up. Thank goodness it is downloadable.

Never realised NASA revised the STS-133 crew photo with Steve Bowen.
