How One Photographer Took Incredible Close-Ups Of Space Shuttle Launches

Shuttle launches are audacious displays of smoke, steam and a gigantic man-made vessel being thrust into space. Documenting in-the-moment details can be tricky — the press site for photographers is 5km from the pad itself. That just wasn’t close enough for Dan Winters.
